The BOSS Network

Knocking Down Barriers with The BOSS Network

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



How The BOSS Network is creating more opportunities for black women

Business and financial coaching to help small business owners make an impact with products and services, geared toward long-term growth

The BOSS network, an online community of professional and entrepreneurial women, is available to help people support each other through networking, content and on and off-line engagement

Provide education, information and resources to The BOSS Network members

How Sage will help

Year 1

We’re investing $500 000 to provide $10k grants for 25 black female small business owners and a one-year business mentoring programme for all 25 students via a scholarship to the BOSS Business University.

Year 2 and 3

We’ll be repeating the same level of grant funding awards and a year of business mentoring to black female small business owners.

A future of equality

Our work to knock down barriers and reach equality doesn’t stop here. We’re working with even more partners to help under-represented communities start successful businesses.
