At Hillman, our team is dedicated to operating an inclusive entrepreneurship education program. We serve underrepresented tech-driven startups through mentorship, specialized curriculum, partnerships, and capital investments-- providing them the resources and guidance they need to scale.
As the Founder and CEO of Hillman, the first accelerator program in the Midwest providing support exclusively to this demographic, Candice Matthews Brackeen is passionate about bringing people from varying backgrounds together to accelerate innovation.
"I love it when other founders, funders and communities extend invitations to visit. No one has time to compete when there’s a common goal. It has been incredibly uplifting visiting and cross-pollinating with different cities across the country to help elevate women and tech founders of color"
