100 is an intimate, raw community of Black/African entrepreneurs, investors, and tech geniuses. Together we're sharing tried and true information, best kept secrets, step by steps, constructive feedback, actionable advice, and opportunities.
Why? It's simple. There should be more of us thriving. The norms should be to drop a line of game, open up about hard lessons learned, and champion each other. Paths of greatness don't have to be pursued alone. Let's get it.
Goal: Overshare. Keep it real af. Avoid missteps. Use shared knowledge to go harder and stronger. Build trust. Collaborate. Level up collectively. Confidently stretch a hand.
How it works: 2x a month: Virtual conversations (on the below topics), office hours, and occasional intimate gatherings.
What to expect: Very human, generous and experienced minds coming together to humbly share the real.
Honesty with yourself and your experiences (the good, bad, and ugly). Facts only. Commitment to greatness. Accountability to your word. Depth. Give and Take. Vulnerability.
Culture: No hype, frills, ego, judgment, talking just to talk. No one is better than anyone else, no posturing, "sonning", sizing up/one uping, making simple things a competition etc (chill homie, chill). No pressure to be perfect or know everything or have all your shit together. Live your truth. No one is too big and no question is too small. Speak on what you know and listen when you don't. Community first, pay it forward. You're enough, you're worthy. Respect each other's time and journey.
