"Being involved in a program that understands the challenges we face in the Black community is a top priority for us... These programs are very much needed at scale”.

Trusting us for a better future

“Such an amazing action-oriented program that is giving me the tools needed to scale my business.

Not having to pay for such a much-needed program of support allows me to put the little cash I have into creating tech that directly positively impacts our customers.

This is an opportunity most in the Black community do not get. 1000 Black Voices has made this possible.”
