We Salute Our 2014 - 2016 Fellows!

Join us in saluting the 2014 -- 2016 fellows class. Our esteemed fellows worked with congressional members and committees, attended leadership development seminars, completed community service projects and produced legislative recommendations to make existing policy work better. 

CBCF Fellows gained invaluable insight into the legislative process. By working in Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) member offices they were able to assist in the
development of public policy initiatives that                                                                                        aim to better our communities.

Many of our fellows will be continuing their public service in Washington, D.C. in new government and non-profit positions. Join us in celebrating the CBCF fellowship cohort of 2014 - 2016!

The CBCF convened its second Executive Economic Summit on May 6, 2016, in Berkeley, CA. 

The Summit highlighted the challenges minorities face with access to capital and the various contributing factors that have historically and disproportionately affected African-American owned STEM firms and business enterprises.

The CBCF connected a diverse group of business leaders, policymakers, and venture capitalists to build a smarter approach to growth for minority-owned STEM businesses and African-American entrepreneurs. 

Industry heads such as STEMboard CEO and Founder Aisha Bowe, Base Ventures Founding and Managing Partner Erik Moore, and SoftTech Venture Capital Partner Charles Hudson discussed wealth creation, building capital, and Federal initiatives to promote business.
