In North Carolina, recognized as the top state for business since 2022, not everyone shares in its economic prosperity. BIPOC communities, often situated near thriving business districts, face enduring systemic barriers rooted in historical disenfranchisement. They struggle to access funds for business growth, encounter challenges in property acquisition, and have limited opportunities in corporate sectors.

Unfortunately, this problem is not just in North Carolina but is a nationwide issue. Economic growth in areas rich with technology and business does not always reach the communities closest to them. Prosperity Now's "Road to Zero Wealth" report paints a grim future, predicting that African American wealth could disappear by 2053 if nothing changes. This is due to a lack of support for Black entrepreneurs, insufficient resources for starting and growing businesses, and a shortage of educational programs tailored to the needs of these communities.

We are here to change this narrative. Our goal is to break down these barriers and create opportunities for BIPOC entrepreneurs to lead, innovate, and prosper. We're committed to ensuring economic success is inclusive and accessible, promoting fair access to resources, supporting real estate ventures, and enhancing educational opportunities for all.
