This need for longer-term recovery and resiliency focused capital is right around the corner, and without it, our black and brown businesses are likely to stall and potentially fail. We must begin our work now if we are to be ready.

ABOUT US

OUR STORY

Partners in Equity is committed to ensuring that black and brown businesses across NC are deeply rooted--specifically as owners of the buildings and land where their companies grow. We leverage community insights, data analytics and impact investments to do this work. Today's concurrent crises of public health, the economy's deterioriation and general capital constraings--all uniquely challenging with outsized impacts to black and brown communities and business owners--make our mission and approach more critical than ever. Partners in Equity is a private real estate investment fund and Qualified Opportunity Zone Fund.

THE TIME IS NOW

The CARES Act (March 2020) offers essential, albeit temporary, relief to small businesses who have been impacted by the operational, workforce and economic consequences of COVID-19. While this response capital may have provided interim relief to companies facing immediate cash flow and operational hurdles, this capital will not sustain companies as they navigate from response and relief to recovery and resilience. This is where we are uniquely positioned, especially for black and brown businesses. Our ResilNC initiative helps us capture more accurate data around the experiences of minority-owned businesses across the state.
