MoFo launches pro bono support programme for black-owned businesses

Black Venture Accelerator will provide free legal services and business-related advice

Morrison & Foerster is launching a pro bono initiative to support black founders and black business owners as part of the firm’s commitment to diversity and inclusion and its response to racial injustice.

The Black Venture Accelerator programme aims to improve financial inclusion for black business owners, providing both legal services and wider business support to help participants scale their businesses. That will include mentorship, educational resources and networking opportunities, as well as creative and practical advice on the business challenges they might face.

Dario de Martino, MoFo corporate partner and leader of the programme, said: “Black entrepreneurs have had to confront economic under-inclusion and unfair obstacles to full participation in the economy for too long. We believe access – not just to legal or professional services, but also networks – is a cornerstone of inclusion.”

De Martino will lead a steering committee comprised of MoFo partners, associates and diversity and inclusion specialists.
