For the Culture: BBE is intended to be designed to highlight local Black entrepreneurs/creatives and small businesses. This event is designed to expand networks and empower other Black dynamic folk to pursue their passions. Role models/mentors aren't always available--you know, people to look up to and say "what they're doing is tangible to me". We just have to pull together and elevate each other in order to continue on this marathon.
Shop Black Businesses + Networking + Mimosas
Our space is designed to highlight local entrepreneurs/creatives and small businesses owned by local Black businesses.
We have to stop blurring the line between “commitment” and “self-endangerment” because too many people are burning out before they have the chance to truly shine.
Sometimes, you need to be around like minded individuals who can truly resonate with your struggle in order to bloom into the being that you know that you can be.

Raffles and more!
A safe space where Black entrepreneurs and creatives can network, collaborate, and elevate.
Come and enjoy some melanin and mimosas!
