2 NM organizations among finalists in national competition


“In August 2020, NWL in collaboration with NMCC entered our bold solution, The Future Is Indigenous Womxn, the only Indigenous-focused finalist in the Equality Can’t Wait Challenge. Our proposal is centered around investing and scaling high-performing Native-owned businesses to unlock potential for wealth creation, power, and influence. NWL and NMCC plan to create a waterway of investable womxn-owned companies that will be developed as well as new, non-harmful business financing mechanisms,” said Vanessa Roanhorse in a news release, NWL Co-Founder.

The top three finalists in the challenge will receive $10 million. Another $10 million will be divided among all the finalists. For more information, visitequalitycantwaitchallenge.org.
