This brings us back to InvestBLACK. How will a winner be selected?
There are four rounds of competition. In the last round, the five finalists will have the opportunity to pitch their business idea in person, like “Shark Tank.”
As you help others achieve their goals, what goals would you like to achieve moving forward?
In the next few years, I want to help companies reach their full potential. The goal is to make sure that any company I invest in becomes successful. But also making sure that I’m able to give back in terms of education. That will help entrepreneurs who have businesses that need that extra push to get through. We’re also going to help them pay off their student loans if they’re a business that is doing things to give back to the community. I want to inspire people to get involved in the movement. We’re not looking for someone with pristine credit, or how much debt you have or your credit score. We’re trying to invest in people that we really believe in and provide an opportunity.
