Come Up Markets LLC aka Come Up LA is a monthly marketplace that showcases Black creatives, brands and entrepreneurs. This multi-generational platform affords entrepreneurs networking, promotion, and marketability opportunities. Our mission is to harness our shared spending power and we work with the community at the forefront of this action. We do so in a supportive and organized fashion, to affect and effect change by establishing generational wealth in the Black community and creating socio-economic transformation.
In just two years, Come Up LA’s monthly marketplace has provided a safe space for over 200 Black entrepreneurs, brands, and creatives. Our platform has been a pillar for Black entrepreneurs in any stage of their business as a resource to connect, support and be agents of collective growth and advancement. We want to continue to do that.
We are looking to our local, national and global community to support us in amplifying Black Entrepreneurs. Since the onset of COVID-19 it has become crystal clear that entrepreneurship is the key to having a solid financial future and establishing generational wealth. Help us sustain our presence in the community while supporting other Black entrepreneurs.
WE NEED YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT TO affect the scale of Come Up LA’s reach, growth and support to our community.
Our URGENT Needs:
Reestablishing Our Presence - The uncertainty of COVID-19 forced us to prematurely halt all upcoming markets. Thus causing us to lose thousands of dollars of revenue and the effects have trickled down to our loyal vendors and artist. We want to be able to uphold our commitment to the Black entrepreneur community.
Organizational development - Currently Come Up LA is a one woman show, we need a team to manage our growing community! We value the talented individuals within our network and would love to hire from within, so that we can actively reduce unemployment in the Black community. We can go fast alone, but we can go far together!
Diversifying Our Offerings & Services - COVID has highlighted the need for digital presence. It is time for us to move from a traditional event based platform to a global hub and incubator of Black entrepreneurs. Further pivoting the Come Up LA brand to incorporate tech, young Black entrepreneurs, financial education/literacy, wellness & health.
Thank you for your time, consideration and most importantly your SUPPORT.
We are forever grateful to those who see the value in uplifting Black Entrepreneurs.
WE ARE NOTHING WITHOUT COMMUNITY!
