Today’s the Day. Yesterday may not have been and tomorrow seems more like a missed opportunity. No, it’s definitely today. Today is the day we as minority entrepreneurs embrace our powers as a collective. We will not be marginalized. We will no longer have to bring proof of concept to the table when our counterparts land 3x more funding with a business plan and a smile.
How can we dim our light when we reflect the sun? I stand here on the anniversary of the Tulsa Race Massacres with the whiff of smoldering businesses still in the air offering a better way. One too many of our businesses have shuttered, burned down, rubber stamped, and simply out maneuvered due to the age old machinations of those who NEVER wanted to see us be great in the first place.
You ask me why Byld It? Why Now? I say I feel like I should’ve did this years ago. I ask where are the billions that were supposed to be allocated to communities of color post George Floyd? What are the big corps saying about the daily George Floyds of the world? How can I stand by and support a business that can’t even support my existence?
