Connecting communities through research.
Partner with ResilNC to support Black business owners across North Carolina.
When COVID-19 shuttered businesses around the world in 2020, ResilNC began work to ensure that Black businesses would not be left out of the financial recovery that was soon underway. We began by working with partners across North Carolina to provide the data needed to document the effects of COVID-19 on Black businesses and to highlight their capital needs to the investment community. Looking forward, we aim to deepen our work to uplift the stories of North Carolina's Black-owned businesses and entrepreneurs, as well as the lenders, investors, and support organizations that serve them best. We provide data-driven insights through our reports and convenings to drive investment to improve the economic condition of Black businesses, their owners, employees, and communities.
ResilNC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit based in Greensboro, NC. We were originally launched as a special initiative of Partners in Equity, a private real estate investment fund and Qualified Opportunity Zone fund, and are grateful for the ongoing support and partnership.
