    Dulcé Sloan is one of the sharpest, fastest rising voices in comedy. Bust Magazine calls her “comedy gold” while Indiewire describes her as “a fresh and unique voice in the world of stand-up comedy.” She was included in Variety Magazine’s prestigious Top 10 Comedians To Watch list, and SLiNK Magazine just crowned her “The New Queen of Comedy.” Rolling Stone recently hailed her as one of the 10 Comedians You Need to Know declaring “she speaks and they simply fall in line behind her.” Dulcé has been a correspondent on Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Trevor Noah since 2017. Her segments, including “9-1-1 For White People Emergencies” and “Dumb Solutions to Policing Problems” have garnered millions of views. She is also one of the  stars of the new animated FOX series The Great North, joining an ensemble of comedy heavyweights including Jenny Slate, Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, and Paul Rust. The series, from the creators of FOX’s hit animated show Bob’s Burgers, premiered February 14th , 2021 and has already been picked up for a third season. In November 2020, Dulcé starred alongside Malin Akerman, Alec Baldwin, and Bella Thorne in the action-comedy feature film Chick Fight, with The Hollywood Reporter declaring “Dulcé Sloan…not just steal(s) the movie but make(s) sure that no one else even comes close.” In October 2019, Dulcé’s Comedy Central Presents stand-up special  premiered on Comedy Central. The New York Times included the half hour in their “Best Comedy of 2019” roundup.

    Black Girl Ventures (BGV) is starting off our BGV PITCH TOUR in Chicago on September 22nd! We will be throwing a BGV Pitch Competition in partnership with Nike and the aid of our BGV Change Agents. Our Change Agents are 6 Black and/or Brown women founders who are actively engaged in uplifting the current ecosystem for Black and Brown founders in your city.

     

    A BGV Pitch Competition is like ‘Shark Tank’ mixed with the elements of a classic “Rent Party”. At a BGV pitch program, the audience decides the winner through Raisify.co, our voting platform, with their dollars. The winner is determined by the number of votes, not the dollar amount raised. The money raised goes to the founders, despite where they place.

     

    The prizes for the pitch competitors are:

     

    1st place: $10k

     

    2nd place: $6k

     

    3rd place: $2k

     

    As well as other non-monetary prizes to enhance their business.

     

    Come out, hang with the BGV team leads and Change Agents. Network with other founders, investors, customers, and watch these amazing 7 women pitch, vote with your dollars, and learn new businesses to shop. Light refreshments and drinks will be served. You do not want to miss this super dope event.

     

    BGVs mission is to create access to capital, capacity and community. This means we want to see ALL Black and Brown women-identifying founders win. We want to help these founders in the communities we serve, scale and grow their businesses, gain the capacity to hire those in your community, and social capital to meet those who will help you grow in partnerships, accessibility and your industry.
