New Voices



Latino-owned businesses are the fastest-growing businesses within the minority community. African American women are creating six times as many businesses as their white counterparts. New Voices is an ecosystem and a venture fund dedicated to supporting this growing market through access to coaching, training, supply chain strategies, and financing. Leveraging the entire capital spectrum, New Voices is investing in this multi-billion dollar market globally. This comes to the market as part of Unilever’s acquisition and partnership with Sundial Brands.
