OUR MISSION

Our mission is to create a space where the distinct experiences of black women in business are not just acknowledged but celebrated. We are committed to fostering a supportive ecosystem that thrives on shared narratives, empowerment, and advocacy.

Statistic highlights a notable disparity in average revenue between Black female founders and all women-owned businesses. On average, Black female founders generate a modest revenue of $24,000, a stark contrast to the $142,900 average revenue among all women-owned businesses.

Businesses owned by women of color represent 47% of all women-owned enterprises, employing 2,230,600 individuals and generating an impressive $386.6 billion in revenues.

Between 2007 and 2018, the average revenue for women of color declined from $84,000 to $66,400, whereas for non-minority businesses, revenue increased from $181,000 to $212,300.

There is an imperative need for a paradigm shift.

THE VISION

In the heart of Los Angeles, the vision behind the docuseries "Black Business Women Cry Different" was born out of a deep-seated commitment to amplify the voices and experiences of black women in business. The founding members of our organization recognized the need for a platform that not only acknowledged the distinct challenges faced by black business women but also celebrated their resilience, creativity, and triumphs. The idea emerged from a desire to showcase the untold stories, shedding light on the unique journeys of black women entrepreneurs, executives, and professionals who navigate a landscape where their experiences often go unrecognized. It became evident that a docuseries would serve as a powerful medium to not only document these narratives but to inspire, connect, and empower a broader audience.

As the vision took shape, it became clear that the docuseries would be a transformative tool for breaking down barriers and fostering a sense of community among black business women. The goal was not only to highlight the challenges but to explore the strength and brilliance that emerge from those challenges. Through intimate interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, and a genuine portrayal of the triumphs and tribulations, "Black Business Women Cry Different" is set to be a testament to the resilience and innovation of black women in business. It is a visual narrative that captures the essence of our organization's mission — to create a space where the stories of black business women are not only heard but become a source of inspiration for generations to come.
