BlackBusinessList.com – We are dedicated to helping minority business people start, maintain, and grow viable businesses. We not only have online opportunities to connect but we have started local chapters where our advertisers can meet, learn, and network offline as well.
BWS – Official Black Wall Street – a digital platform and database created to give black-owned businesses, black entrepreneurs, and aspiring entrepreneurs a place to shine. Studies show that out of our $1.1 trillion buying power only 2% is invested in black-owned businesses. This platform was created out of a need to support businesses that are owned and operated by black entrepreneurs to funnel more of that money back into our communities. The most common challenge however is discovering black companies and verifying that older businesses are still black-owned. That is where Official Black Wall Street comes in.
I Am Black Business – As young minority professionals working in corporate America, we find ourselves searching for opportunities to serve our communities, specifically the black community. Typically, we are encouraged to start new businesses. While the development of new black businesses is necessary for economic growth, we have concluded that it is equally as important to empower and uplift the black businesses that already exist.
