Our Beliefs

We believe in a world where economic equality is accessible for everyone. Our mission is to support minority-identifying entrepreneurs by providing access to professional development, capacity building, community and capital in order to meet business goals that lead to accelerating economic equality through business ownership. 



We Invest In

  • For Profit & Nonprofit revenue generating businesses under $100K/year.
  • Founded by entrepreneurs who identify as a minority.
  • We inspire community crowdfunding to help build a stronger business ecosystem that supports and funds local entrepreneurs and their ventures.

Too often, minority entrepreneurs lack the resources and community they need to bring their missions to life. 


Here’s How You Can Help

Send Donation

Giving online has never been more secure, convenient or hassle-free with our one-click donation. We also do accept standard cash and check donations at our location.

Become a Volunteer

You can get involved today by becoming a Volunteer. Sign up and you will be joining a group of change-makers, a network strong enough to impact positive change in the community

Community Crowdfunding

Having a positively strong community is important for everyone. When the community comes together and supports local entrepreneurs and business owners it is much stronger than one solo act standing on its own. We need the community to invest in St. Louis minority-identifying entrepreneurs and their businesses to help them grow and make a lasting economic and social impact.
