Increase Revenue of Black-owned Businesses in Jefferson County
If you are interested in developing an inclusive ecosystem for small and minority businesses that increase equitable outcomes in starting a business, doing business, and accessing capital, contact us today.
We are based out of Birmingham, Alabama, which is home to one of the most influential campaigns of the Civil Rights Movement. The Movement was a fight for equality; however, today economic inequalities still exist.
African Americans make up 74% of Birmingham’s population and 42% of Jefferson County.
Did you know business revenues in Jefferson County come in at around $100 Billion collectively? However, Black-owned businesses make up less than 1% of Jefferson County’s revenue.
We have a way to bridge the gap by supporting Black-owned businesses and fostering growth in the African American community. Looking ahead, we plan to:
Raise $2,000,000 in Individual and Institutional Sponsorships
Facilitate Partnerships that Support Business Development and Education
Annually Grant $250,000
Develop a stronger ecosystem for social, service organizations serving the Black community.
