Michael B. Jordan has partnered with the legendary Serena Williams to give upcoming entrepreneurs who are students or alumni of HBCUs a chance to win up to $1 Million.
Through an endowment from Jordan’s firm Investco QQQ Legacy Classic, Serena Ventures, the legendary player’s investment company, and MaC Venture Capital, participants must submit an inventive business proposal to be eligible.
In a statement via Revolt, Alison Stillman, a general partner at Serena Ventures, said, “HBCUs are an integral part of our educational ecosystem and have long been centers of entrepreneurial excellence. We are thrilled to be partnering with Michael B. Jordan and MaC Ventures on highlighting the brilliant student and alumni founders.”
According to a press release, Jordan and Williams will award the winners of their unique competition on Dec. 18, in New Jersey, during the QQQ Legacy Classic Basketball Showcase Finals.
Students from North Carolina Central University, North Carolina A&T State University, Hampton University and Howard University are expected to attend the event, which will also air on TNT.
