The Power of Black Entrepreneurship

“I’m on a mission to create generational wealth for my boys, and I know it starts with me being able to show them that you have to take chances, you have to take risks, you have to put yourself out there.”


It’s a fact that Black owners have more difficulty qualifying for business loans than other groups. That’s why Hello Alice created the Small Business Funding Center to curate the best grant opportunities and connect you with 90+ lending and financing partners — all with one simple application.
