A database of start-ups advancing racial equity and highlighting areas for innovation.
<aside> 🌍 Racial Inequity Drawdown (RID) is an educational database and call-to-action for prospective founders, investors, and current founders curious about entrepreneurship reducing racial inequities. Inspired by Project Drawdown: an approachable list of climate solutions, and Y Combinator's Request for Start-ups: a list of start-up ideas for prospective founders, RID provides a solutions-first approach by listing key entrepreneurial spaces in need of innovation around racial equity, alongside existing start-ups. Incubated at Fifty Years and currently led by undergrad Admins.
