When 2020 started one of my biggest goals was to support more black owned businesses. I soon realized there was a lack of resources to locate black owned businesses in the city. So I created Black Owned Toronto on Instagram. The page is dedicated to highlighting, discovering, and promoting black owned businesses! The platform grew extremely quickly, going from 300 followers to 40,000 in just a few days. I was amazed by how much support and clients every business I posted received! I will continue working everyday to help black business owners flourish! But in order to do that, I need your support. There are several projects I'm trying to fund at the moment. The most important one being the Black Owned Toronto Business Convention I plan on having in 2021. It will be a large market style convention, with several black business owners having booths set up. This will be an opportunity for black business owners to sell, promote and grow their business. As well as filming projects, to highlight black owned businesses even more. Your support and contributes will allow me to keep this platform growing and thriving! And allow me to continue finding ways to support and uplift the black community!
Thank you for your support
