Black-owned businesses are often underinvested and underrepresented. According to a recent analysis “economic differences” continue to exist.

Business support and mentoring are important resources to have when starting and growing a business, and even more important during a crisis.

This edition also highlights several local organizations that offer resources for small business owners and entrepreneurs. Services include but are not limited to:

  • Funding

  • Disaster Recovery

  • Business Development

  • Government Contracting

Empowering African-American business owners is vital as many are facing financial losses and future uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Paula Anderson, publisher said, “The goal is to continue highlighting underrepresented entrepreneurs in Tennessee. Black-owned businesses represent a small percentage of entrepreneurs, and it is important to showcase them especially during COVID-19.”
