SB Opportunity Fund to Continue Investing in Underrepresented Founders Through an Evergreen Structure Following Initial $100M

The SB Opportunity Fund is dedicated to supporting and building a community of outstanding Black, Latinx and Native American founders.

Our Mission

SoftBank Group launched the $100M SB Opportunity Fund in June 2020 to build a community of founders and investors who have been overlooked in venture capital. Through our work, we have built a growing community of 70+ companies. In March 2022, we doubled down on our commitment by making the SB Opportunity Fund an uncapped evergreen fund that will continue to invest in visionary Black, Latinx and Native American entrepreneurs and give them access to SoftBank Group’s network.

If you are a founder interested in connecting with us, please introduce yourself. We look forward to hearing from you.
