What is Black Business Enterprises?

We help keep the dollar where it matters.

The black dollar circulates its own community less than three times before it leaves it. We recognize that with black people spending upwards of 1.2 trillion dollars per year, there must be an effort put for to increase the amount of time that money must circulate internally. Black Business Enterprises has committed its efforts towards creating an intentional and near-seamless process to achieving this goal.

Get involved!

Help us amplify black voices.

We believe that community is key when lifting up our neighbors. Help us empower black businesses by becoming a part of our community today!
