WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS

We believe

The COVID-19 pandemic disproportionally impacted Black and Brown business owners and entrepreneurs. Many were forced to close their doors, and some may never reopen. We want to make sure Black and Brown-owned businesses start, grow, and thrive. To do that, they need financial resources and support.

Problem

Like wealth, poverty is passed down from one generation to the next, driven by racial inequity, underinvestment, and structural barriers in our communities.
