Black Entrepreneurs' Fund

The Black upStart "Black Entrepreneurs Incubator" is a nationally recognized business training program that unapologetically trains Black entrepreneurs to start job creating businesses.

We are saddened to learn of Nipsey Hussle's murder and are channeling our tears, anger and outrage into something positive! Nipsey Hussle supported the Black upStart's work via social media and regularly viewed our content.  In honor of his memory, we have launched a "Black Entrepreneurs' Fund" to fully fund tuition for Black entrepreneurs seeking to become Black employers,

$500 covers the cost of our incubator.  

We want to fund four people!

100% of contributions will be used to sponsor the participation of low-income Black entrepreneurs or hustlers who want to build wealth for their families by starting a legitimate business. 

You can learn more about us here: AND 

Our incubator has trained entrepreneurs in DC, Brooklyn, Raleigh, Durham, Charlotte, Baltimore, Tulsa and recently we launched a popup school in Atlanta for Black entrepreneurs.

You can read about our work in Essence , Entrepreneur Magazine , Black Enterprise  or Blavity .
