We created this site as a resource to further empower Black entrepreneurs and leaders by promoting their successful brands and other valuable resources that stimulate entrepreneurship in Black communities. In light of recent events, sharing on social media is great and increases awareness of serious issues, but the tweets and posts eventually fall farther down the timeline and get lost while a website and directory has a much longer lifespan. This isn't a brand statement. This isn't an audience awareness campaign. This is simply highlighting an impressive group of entrepreneurs. This is a resource that will be continually updated, and we hope you will continually support. Please submit any businesses not listed yet here: https://www.theblackownedbusines... In this together, JD, Greg, and Hunter
Are there any Black people involved with the creation, curation, or communication of this project?
@bryanlanders Hey there. No one on the initial team that built out the site was Black, but we're getting a huge amount of submissions from businesses owners that we'll soon be adding. We also spoke with some of the featured owners that helped point us in the right direction for lists and companies to include in this first version. We've also been contacted by talented Black people that are wanting to help volunteer. Let us know if you know anyone that'd be willing to help with developing, curating or growing!
@jd_yaguara Thanks for answering and for driving attention and dollars to Black-owned businesses, JD. What I hope most is that you recruit a Black person who you put in a decision-making position on the team and pay fairly for their work. I've learned that it can be problematic to not have the voice of the community you're serving represented on your team.
What's the benefits after joining the group.
Sounds amazing! As a new black owned business I hope that we can work together in the near future! https://fallenrosethelabel.com/
