The ability to promote economic development is vital to the Black community. Entrepreneurship is a powerful tool for advancing positive socioeconomic change. One role of organizations is to build a dynamic, robust ecosystem for Black businesses.
Imagine the power of understanding the role of business in accelerating economic development leading to jobs, homeownership, and the growth of more businesses through partnerships and acquisitions.
Black Achiever’s members have shared their desire for entrepreneurship with the MBA Accelerator. Roughly ten percent of the Black Achiever members stated, “I seek to be an entrepreneur and own a business.”
The upside of four hundred new businesses in our local economy supported by Black Achievers and the MBA Accelerator is a powerful indicator of socioeconomic change and increased inclusion impacting the Tri-State area. The outcome of this partnership is the advancement of sustainable business that will drive current and generational wealth.
