The Concern and Problem
African Americans / Black People suffer greatly in and at business due to insufficient business knowledge, capital, access, opportunity, and barriers – racial/racism and economic/capitalism. African American / Black Business are disproportionate to its Black population size, income, and to Black-spending. The latter, Black-spending is a significant factor in the failure of Black Business creation, sustainability and growth, for the overwhelming percentage of Black-spending is conducted with non-Black Businesses, which doubly compounds the access to capital as prevented by both combined racism and capitalist roadblocks and assaults. Lacking knowhow, capital and infrastructure the Black Community/Population is deprived of business and wealth that otherwise should be present.
The mission of ITB-BG is to create and apply solutions to the forgoing problem(s) – knowhow, capital, racism, spending – that will enable the creation of, growth, development, and expansion of Black Business(es) beyond such otherwise limitations; to facilitate a structure for business owners, entrepreneurs, business leaders, advocates, educators and allies to meet, share, and work together to support the creation and growth of Black Businesses – including an inward turn in Black spending, and neutralizing racism and capitalism as barriers.
