- Thank you!
Maggie Lena Walker was the first female bank president of any race to charter a bank in 1902. Black women have continued down this path of entrepreneurship. According to one report, "the number of businesses created by black women in the United States alone is up more than 460% over the last 20 years, making them the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the nation."
Of course, we've known this for some time, and have the track record to prove it. We launched MinorityFinance in 1998 and noted that 65% of the inquiries from the site came from Black women. While others have come along after our launch, we remain active and at the forefront.
The key issue then, and now, is money: "according to the Diane Project, black female founders are only able to raise an average of $36,000 in venture funding, while start-ups owned mostly by white males have received on average $1.3 million." We provide data-based advice and instruction, based on our years of experience, to help you over this hurdle.
Our class provides information on the current state of Black women businesses. We provide actionable information you can use to get financing for your business.

I think it is a much-needed course and all information will be put to good use.
I do not have an extensive history with handling loans, so while this course is not in my wheelhouse, it is important. Hearing Gwen Hurt's story was definitely interesting!
Not completely guide
The course started on a slow simmer, but gradually heated up mid-way to the end of the course. Personally, I thought the content and resources that were provided in this session were outstanding. Besides that I do enjoy the flavor of the speaker and how he delivers his message. Impressive!
