Written by on October 2, 2023

On Saturday, the US Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit temporarily blocked a venture capital fund’s program that would have awarded grants to Black women-run businesses. The program, Fearless Strivers Grant Contest, was set up to promote diversity in business and set aside grant money specifically for minority-owned businesses. The case is an appeal from the US District Court for the Northern District of Georgia Atlanta Division.
