Meet the Next Round of Black Founder Grantees

Congrats to the next four Black Founder Grantees: Michelle Essien, founder of Iko; Candice Blacknall, founder of GABA; Adero Knott, founder of AK Prosthetics; and Tenlie Mourning, founder of Dendwell. SoGal Foundation is thrilled to be supporting and working alongside these impressive founders and game-changing companies.

Check out their businesses, follow their socials, and subscribe to their newsletters to keep updated on their company growth.

AK Prosthetics ($10,000 recipient) is disrupting the prosthetics industry, revolutionizing the way prosthetics are made today, by offering customized prosthetic limbs and adaptive wearables.

Dendwell ($5,000 recipient) is building a community of curators who are coming together on The Forum to talk about home, design, and decor. We're working to launch a social marketplace where you can inspire each other with ideas, plan a project, and visually organize objects in a digital space before you buy.

GABA ($10,000 recipient) is the first verified community for medical students and graduates of medical school. We offer reviews on educational resources, schools, and personalized career development.

Iko ($5,000 recipient) is building a path back to language, story, history, and heritage for those who find themselves isolated from their pasts while documenting and preserving said at-risk cultures for the future.

This round marks the second-last round of 2020 Black Founder Grantees. Stay tuned for SoGal Foundation x Howard University's student grantee announcement sponsored by the Ottawa Community Foundation later this year. Applications to apply are rolling for 2021 and beyond, so please see more information and apply if you have not yet.

Special shoutout to our financial services partner, Brex. Brex makes it easy and faster for our founder community to get a business credit card with no personal guarantee, and then manage their money from a single, intuitive dashboard with live support. Open an account today.
