MINWO is building tech solutions that are designed to target different aspects of the racial wealth gap that persists in the US. Long term (10 years+), my goal is to have a suite of products that address this similar to how Microsoft Office changed the landscape of business productivity.

Our first tech product, Rialto, is a two-sided platform that connects Black and founders of color to the business development organizations and resources looking for them by leveraging the power of data analytics (AI & ML). My goal for this product is 1) to be the largest online community of active Black and Latinx founders 2) to host the largest number of business communities that support founders (e.g. - VCs, Incubators, Accelerators, Business Schools, etc.)

This platform automates the Pipeline Diversity services that we currently offer where we create bespoke opportunities for these organizations to find and meet Black entrepreneurs. Rialto is designed to have the familiarity of a Facebook Group,...

My goal for this product is 1) to be the largest online community of active Black and Latinx founders 2) to host the largest number of business communities that support founders (e.g. - VCs, Incubators, Accelerators, Business Schools, etc.)

This platform automates the Pipeline Diversity services that we currently offer where we create bespoke opportunities for these organizations to find and meet Black entrepreneurs. Rialto is designed to have the familiarity of a Facebook Group, but the productivity of a Slack team. Each business community space is called a "Neighborhood" and each organization can create and host their own Neighborhood on Rialto. This space is designed for them to create organic, intimate relationships with these founders so that they're building diversified pipelines that last over time.

The MINWO Neighborhood on Rialto is open to all Black and Latinx business owners, founders, and service providers. We leverage our expertise in community management to prepare them to connect them to resources, investors, mentors, etc. that can help them grow and scale their businesses. Rialto will also recommend to them other Neighborhoods they should join based on their company's stage and their business needs.
