Less than 5 percent of American business owners are Black. Amid a pandemic that has sent our economy into free fall, Black-owned businesses need more access to capital and funding than ever before.
And, so, we’re doing just that.
We have partnered with organizations such as BeyGOOD, Diversity Capital, Hello Alice, and many more to support Black entrepreneurship and the businesses that have been hit the hardest as a result of COVID-19 and social uprisings.
We are pleased to announce another opportunity – NAACP Powershift Entrepreneur Grant – an initiative by NAACP and Daymond John, founder and CEO of FUBU and star of Emmy Award-winning show, Shark Tank, to find and award $175,000 to up and coming Black entrepreneurs.
Submissions for the grant are now open until October 12; spread the word and apply here.
