A nonprofit organization focused on one of the most significant challenges facing America today.
We believe the most consequential decisions, threats, and opportunities humanity has ever faced will take place during the next 50 years (Reframe for the black community. The Black community is on a path to zero wealth by 2054). Venture Noire’s purpose is to find solutions to these challenges and implement them through projects – with a goal of improving overall quality of life for the Black community and the country as a whole.
The Venture Noire projects we lead and support are not biased by field or methodology. Our focus is to implement solutions in the most effective way possible, from non-profit and legislative efforts, for-profit investments and business creation, to the development of new movements and technologies.
To do this — from discovering and developing new ideas to analyzing, funding and operating them as projects — Venture Noire works with an exceptional group of people called Black Ops. The Black Ops is a vibrant community of some of the world’s most capable leaders, ranging from Nobel Prize-winning scientists and activists to artists, technologists, explorers, business leaders and more.
Beyond advancing individual projects, the members meet around the world and across disciplines to share ideas through Venture Noire meetings. Venture Noire sells no products, offers no services, and partners with external organizations only to implement projects. We’re based in Los Angeles, Bentonville, Kansas City and New York City, with a global membership.
