Since opening its doors in 1990, Milestone Growth Fund has invested $26.9 million in 78 companies owned by entrepreneurs of color. The main criteria for choosing portfolio companies is how well they fit our model of growing companies that are able to create well-paying jobs and otherwise contribute to their communities’ economic prosperity.
Milestone has invested in companies in a wide range of industries. Unlike many investment funds, we take an industry neutral approach in order to focus on our broader mission of supporting entrepreneurs of color. Industries the Fund has invested in include: manufacturing, construction, media, communications, and other services.
