Tech Founder Hadiyah Mujhid Partners With AnnenbergTech And PledgeLA To Create Equity For Black And Latinx VC’s And Founders

In business, it takes money to make money. Yet for many Black and Latinx founders, access to capital is a barrier to entry into their respective industries. Another barrier is often access to venture capitalists who come from similar backgrounds as them, who understand them, and who believe in their ideas and businesses enough to invest in them.

According to research, only 1% of VC-backed companies have Black founders, and only 2% of firms have investment team members who identify as Black. 

San Francisco based technologist, Hadiyah Mujhid, has been solving for that equity problem as the founder and CEO of HBCUvc. Prominently known for building pathways for underrepresented investors and founders, HBCUvc has led the charge on developing the next generation of venture capital leaders from Historically Black Colleges and Universities through their strategic programming and partnerships.

Computer antivirus pioneer John McAfee tweeted last year that he hadn’t filed a tax return in eight years.

“Taxation is illegal,” he said.

Now McAfee has been arrested in Spain on tax evasion charges. The U.S. Justice Department has accused him of failing to file tax returns from 2014 to 2018 despite making millions, according to an indictment unsealed Monday.

He is accused of making money from “promoting crypto-currencies,

John McAfee, McAfee Associates Founder, Indicted on Tax Evasion Charges

John McAfee, a computer programmer best known for his anti-virus software, has been indicted on federal tax evasion charges after allegedly hiding assets from the IRS, including real property, a vehicle, and a yacht, the Department of Justice said Monday. McAfee, the founder of McAfee Associates, has been charged with tax evasion and willful failure to file tax returns, according to an unsealed June indictment following his arrest in Spain. Prosecutors allege McAfee earned millions of dollars from promoting cryptocurrencies, consulting, speaking engagements, and selling his life story for a documentary—but failed to file tax returns from 2014 and 2018. To avoid tax liability, McAfee allegedly directed his income to several bank accounts and cryptocurrency accounts and bought several items, including real estate, a yacht, and a car. The indictment, however, does not allege McAfee received any income from the anti-virus company he once founded.

Zoom Founder Made $12 Billion In 6 Months

KEY POINTS

  • Eric Yuan is the founder of Zoom
  • His net worth increased as much as $12 billion in 6 months
  • Zoom’s value skyrocketed during the pandemic

Eric Yuan’s net worth was just $5 million six months ago. He saw his wealth increase by as much as $12 billion during the pandemic, thanks to the company he founded, Zoom.

COVID-19 wreaked havoc to many businesses. It forced others to shift to digital while some were shut down permanently. Zoom, as a video conferencing app, did not encounter such problems. It even grew bigger than Lyft and Pinterest. When the pandemic put the world on a standstill, people relied on Zoom to somehow put normalcy in life: they used it to communicate with relatives and friends, conduct meetings with officemates, and carry on online schooling, among others. 

Yuan was already rich when Zoom went public last year pre-COVID, so what the
