Her organization, committed to providing essential resources, mentorship, training, technical assistance, access to capital, and a nurturing sistahood network, has not only conducted over 1,000 free business coaching sessions but also distributed over $1 million in services and technical assistance to Black women founders.

“The Suite” stands as a pivotal milestone in scaling Sistahbiz’s reach and nurturing a thriving community of Black women business leaders. This initiative is set to close the racial equity gaps in entrepreneurship and lay the foundation for generational wealth through entrepreneurship.

  • A Directory of Vetted Service Providers: A reliable link to marketing, operations, legal, and accounting professionals.

A soft launch of “The Suite” on September 26 provided an exclusive preview of its capabilities to a select group of users. The official app release is scheduled for October 9, marking the moment when Black women founders from all walks of life can harness the potential of this groundbreaking platform.
