But that isn't the only obstacle that Black business founders experience when trying to launch a new company. "There are other factors at play, Black women earn $.63 for every dollar their white colleagues earn making it risky to leave a career to launch a business," the statement said. "With all those factors at play, Black women are still launching brands. We find, for ourselves and our contemporaries, the greatest challenge is scaling our brands. Black women-led businesses need capital."
That's where their new initiative comes in. "Consider Something Better challenges corporations and conglomerates to tear down a racially biased system and honor the fiduciary responsibility to communities by creating economic and racial equality; giving equal access to funding to the next generation of Black female founders."
