Amazon Just Listed Some Cool Black-Owned Businesses on Its Site, and We're Shopping!
Amazon recently launched the Black Business Accelerator, a $150 million investment in Black-owned businesses, and I honestly love to hear it! The recipients will not only gain financial assistance, but also business education, mentorship, and marketing support. Historically, this group has been left out of venture funding and mainstream coverage, so I'm hopeful the tides are turning.
The mega-retailer is currently spotlighting the stories and products of these Black founders, so you can easily discover (and shop) them. If you're a Prime member, from now to June 20, you will receive a $10 credit to spend on Amazon Prime Day—one of the biggest shopping events, when you spend $10 on these products.
