Successful Black Women: Kristina Jones

Kristina Jones just became the 14th ever African American female founder to raise $1 million or more for her startup.

She is the co-founder of Court Buddy, a legal tech startup that instantly matches consumers with vetted solo attorneys based on the client’s budget. It makes it easier for the millions of Americans to connect with single and small firm lawyers who struggle to find clients.

Raising capital for black women entrepreneurs is so hard that only 0.2 percent of overall venture capital dollars go to them. And of the rare unicorns who do receive money, the average dollar amount is $36,000, compared to the average $1.3 million doled out to the typical white male founded startup.
