Our Story

BLNDED Media was founded in February 2016 on the belief that media has a responsibility to reflect the stories of entrepreneurs from all walks of life. Our focus is to bring more color to the opaque mainstream of entrepreneurial storytelling.

People often become what they see and, at BLNDED, we’re dedicated to changing the narrative of what it means to be a person of color in business, tech, and media.

As the leading media platform for diverse founders in Austin, Texas, we work to provide a voice for underrepresented entrepreneurs in tech and highlight organizations that support diversity, in order to build a more inclusive startup ecosystem.
