The Better Black Initiative

Help Better Black expand our Black Business Directory Nationwide!

There is no better time than NOW that our message needs to be heard! For 3 years we’ve been pushing for financial literacy, economic inclusion, supporting and building Black businesses.  With our directory and all it’s new functions, including an app, it will make finding Black owned businesses that much easier.  Searching by keywords, city, zip code and much more, makes it more user friendly.  With consumers being able to make a profile, leave a review and rating helps build a community like never before.

With the Better Black logo being the symbol for Black owned businesses, we will help that dollar circulate more than the statistic of 6 hours.  We will have window decals that will go up in every brick and mortar black business to help identify them easier and downloadable png files that can go in the footer of every Black owned business website.

Winning Start Up Business of the Year by the Oakland African American Chambers of Commerce, was just the first step of us being recognized locally.  It’s time to push the narrative all throughout the country, but we can only do that with your help.  Donating money and sharing this fundraiser on all social media platforms will do just that!

We would like to thank you in advance for your contribution!
