Google has selected two local Black-owned businesses to receive $100,000 each from the Google Black Founders Fund. This is the third round of funding for the program that offers programming + mentorship for recipients.

Health Haven Rx was created by Yinka Ojutalayo after helping his dad manage the pricing on his generic prescriptions. The startup is two years old and uses software to provide price transparency for medications.

The CashEx app was founded by Kingsley Ezeani to offer a range of financial services for immigrants. The app helps users transfer funds between countries, open bank accounts, and move credit history. The startup was also recognized for the Harvard President’s Innovation Challenge Awards.

Applications for the 2023 Black Founders Fund will open soon. Sign up for notifications.
