In an effort to bridge the gap, we’ve created Black Cents, a “curated” online marketplace of black-owned products that are sold on Amazon.
Our team is still hard at work building out our best of breed platform for discovering great black owned businesses. With that said, our platform is still heavily reliant upon the community in three ways.
We all have cell phones so this is an opportunity to support a black owned business without upsetting your budget. Check out Figgers Communication and Tesix Wireless!
The ultimate goal for consumer product companies is to secure a spot on the shelf of a Big Box retailer. This creates more exposure and opportunities for growth. Target has invested in an accelerator that grooms small brands and prepares them to pitch their products to leadership. The name of the program is Target Take Off. This is an awesome opportunity for black owned brands.
We love supporting other organizations and want to pass along information for one we truly believe you should support. Soul Food Market gives you the opportunity to support a physical store for products mainly sourced from the African-American community.
