Commitment to Diversity

While we don’t have a diversity mandate, we need diverse founders and funders at the table if we want to build a more inclusive and prosperous economy for everyone. Innovative ideas can come from anywhere; we can’t keep following the same old patterns.

Also, diversity among our LPs is a significant source of value to our founders and we seek to build the most diverse set of LPs anywhere. All are welcome and underrepresented investors are encouraged to apply.


A note about the name: Red Tail Ventures is named in honor of the Tuskegee Airmen, America’s first squadron of Black military pilots in WWII. They were known as the Red Tails because of the distinctive paint scheme on their aircraft.
