Core beliefs

Domestic financial markets are broad and well functioning, for the most part. These markets have, however, ignored investment opportunities in markets populated by minorities and women. Certain institutions have been the beneficiaries of an unprecedented increase in financial market activity and asset values. For these institutions, devoting even a small percentage of assets to markets populated by minorities and women will help even the distribution of income and wealth, contribute to domestic political and economic stability, and earn a competitive return. It is our belief that the Nation, investors, women, and minorities are well served by these efforts.


Our goal is to solve the issues of unemployment and a lack of wealth in the African American, minority and women-owned business community.


Via crowdfunding, we create new investment and financing strategies that generate wealth and employment. These are independent, ethical and entirely new approaches to addressing economic issues in African American, minority and women business communities.
