Calling all Black Women Entrepreneurs: We Want to Hear About your Business!


According to a recent study, Black women are more likely to start a business than white women and white men. The study took 12, 000 people in the U.S., and found that 17% of Black women are starting or have already started a business, compared to just 10% of white women. But, the same study found that Black women were less likely to have a mature business than their white counterparts. This tells us that Black women, despite their ambition, still face unique barriers to success.

Despite Black women accounting for so many startups, representation has mainly focussed on men and white women. So for this Black History Month, we want to spotlight our Black Alpha Women readers tackling entrepreneurship. We’ll be celebrating the triumphs of Black women with their own businesses and taking a look at the unique challenges they may face in white or male-dominated industries. If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear more!

We Want to Feature You and Your Business

Are you a Black business owner who identifies as a woman? If so, Alpha Woman Co. is looking to feature your business this Black History Month and showcase representation in all types of industries.
