Meet Our Entrepreneurs

The way we see it – if we can support a budding Black entrepreneur, a startup Black business, or help grow a mom-&-pop Black business, by turning their idea into a business, scaling that business to make a profit, and squaring those profits – we have helped the entrepreneur, their families, their networks and their communities.
