This past month, we celebrated National Nonprofit Day, Black Business Month and Women’s Equality Day! In case you missed it, check out our social media series highlighting Black-owned businesses in food & beverage, technology & gaming, and platforms, marketplaces and retail. To close out Black Business Month, we highlighted environmental entrepreneurs, including our Envolve Award winners, Trinhydral and Re-Nuble.
Our Program Manager, James Banks, is speaking on a Black Businesses Matter panel as part of Louisville Black Wealth Week. Carolyn Pitt, CEO of Productions.com and Envolve Award Winner, will also be speaking, giving her expertise on business ownership from concept to corporation. Black Wealth Week is a 7-day virtual and in-person event from September 4-11 sponsored by the Wealth Builder Movement. The broadcast will feature pathways to black and brown wealth through financial wellness, entrepreneurship, investment, and real estate. Register here today to join in on the lively discussions virtually!
We would also like to congratulate Carolyn Pitt and the Productions.com team on being selected for Morgan Stanley’s Multicultural Innovation Lab! The program, now in its fifth year, targets startups with multicultural or woman founders, co-founders or other C-suite members. For the next five months, Productions.com will work closely with Morgan Stanley staff, receiving funding, mentorship, networking opportunities, and more.
