The Power & Profit in Partnership for Black Women

Black women are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs according to the 2017 AMEX OPEN State of Women-Owned Businesses report. Although this is promising news, the data shows that Black women on average earn less annually ($26K) than every other minority and non-minority group of women-owned firms. The reasons for this are varied, including a lack of funding, access to networks, and resources. Based on our experiences using joint ventures to build six-figure businesses, we want to highlight this viable option that other solo-business owners can use to increase their revenue. In this session, an attorney, marketing strategist, and business coach share strategies for Black women solopreneurs to utilize joint ventures as a tool for business growth. #collaboratevscompete
