Since our launch earlier this year, we've been hard at work building the IFundWomen of Color community from the ground up, and the response has been incredible. The women in our community are reimagining how we build and use retail spaces, carving out space for Black Women in wellness, tackling food deserts in Brooklyn, and more. You want to get in on this.
