In honor of Black History Month, we’re sharing some incredible and inspiring Black-owned businesses in beauty, wellness, fashion, and lifestyle. Black-owned businesses still receive less than 1% of venture funding with Black women securing less than 0.3% of venture funding.
Let’s flip the script by showing up and supporting Black-owned businesses across all industries. We vote with our dollars, time, and energy. We encourage you to show support by buying their products, following and engaging with them, sharing their business, and showing them love!Here’s to uplifting, sharing, and supporting the Black community not only this month or next month, but always.
