Black-Owned Business Builders

Ben Tucker Theater

Systemic inequities have long plagued black small business owners and entrepreneurs. Black-owned businesses are still 20 percent less likely than white-owned businesses to obtain a loan from a large bank. And black founders raised just about 0.43% of the nearly $43 billion deployed in Q3 of 2022.

COVID only exacerbated things with more black-owned businesses shuttering due to COVID and fewer receiving specialized COVID funding.

This panel celebrates some of our amazing Savannah HQ’d Black Business Owners/Entrepreneurs with an open dialogue on how we can help black-owned businesses and the next generation of black business builders.
