• The Jaylon Smith MEI is the premier agency connecting impact investors to quality & meaningful minority owned investment opportunities.  

  • The MEI, supported by the National Christian Foundation & Sagamore Institute, will host venture pitch competitions around the world to make impact investments in companies dedicated to revitalizing our communities.

I’m proud to announce that I’ll be focusing on minority entrepreneurship in an effort to help close the economic & educational gap in minority communities. I’m committed to passing along the education, mentorship, & opportunities others have provided me by creating the Jaylon Smith MEI that will inspire hope, provide capital, & actively support minority entrepreneurs.
