According to the National Retail Federation, 98% of all retail companies are small businesses.
This industry needs you
That means that you're already the present AND future of retail.
Retail is depending on your business to bring the breath of fresh air it needs. The reality is there is much more to this $2.6 trillion industry than what meets the eye or is ``googleable``. Our mission is to equip you with the expert knowledge, tools, resources, and financial support to grow your business - empowering you economically while also increasing diversity in our industry.
YOU are the future of retail.
The lack of diversity throughout the retail industry, at all levels, became a larger conversation after the death of George Floyd. This nonprofit was founded with the mission of ensuring we are developing brands by Founders of Color to emerge and transform the retail landscape, leading the future of retail.
