Black women are America’s fastest-growing demographic of entrepreneurs but have also been hit the hardest by the pandemic. We have partnered with The BOSS Network for a three-year program to tackle inequality, provide support and guidance during the pandemic and beyond, as well as help black women achieve their goals with everything that is needed to successfully start new businesses.

The BOSS network, an online community of professional and women entrepreneurs, is available to help individuals support each other through networking, content and through both online and offline engagement

Years Two & Three
We will again repeat the same number of grants awarded as well as provide one year of business mentoring for black women-owned small businesses.
