Best Small Business Phone Systems of 2020

Dialpad, Inc., the industry leader in Ai-Powered Customer Intelligence Platform, today announced an expansion of its Tech for Black Founders program and partnership with first-round pick, and Sacramento Kings’ starting point guard, Davion Mitchell. Tech for Black Founders is under the Dialpad for Good umbrella of programming and provides resources aimed at supporting underrepresented founders and small businesses in and beyond the technology sector. This partnership will further expand the program nationally and highlight five Black-owned businesses (College Thriver, Courtroom5, Didactic, Switchboard Live and Wiz Kid Learning), to offer support and increased visibility for historically underrepresented founders.

Dialpad’s Tech for Black Founders program has seen significant growth since its launch in 2021. To date, the program has worked with over 140 Black-owned businesses across the US and Canada, in a range of industries from tech, finance, real estate, to community businesses, accounting for over $700,000 USD per year in free products and discounts.

“I’m proud to partner with Dialpad to support Black-owned businesses through the Tech for Black Founders program,” said Davion Mitchell of the Sacramento Kings. “I’ve really enjoyed building my northern California community so far, and looking forward to using what I’ve learned about teamwork and culture on the court to help Black-owned businesses unlock new levels of achievement and success. As Black-owned businesses have historically been underserved and underfunded, it’s important for me to use my platform to provide greater visibility for these entrepreneurs. This partnership with Dialpad allows us to do that on an even bigger scale.”
