Happy Black History Month! There are many ways to honour this month. One very important one that we want to highlight is to support Black-owned businesses. A McKinsey & Company report showed that on average, Black entrepreneurs have access to one-third of the capital that white entrepreneurs have when starting a business. This inequity Black entrepreneurs face highlights the importance of redirecting our dollars to contribute to lasting economic equality for Black business owners.
