“My record label has launched the careers of some of music’s biggest artists. I’m now focused on helping to grow a pipeline of Black-owned tech companies through my non-profit TechNolij.
“I’m committed to seeing more Black people and women participate in commercial real estate opportunities and more Black-owned businesses secure government contracts.”
The playing field is not level, and it’s never been leveled. As a result, Black people have had to play catchup throughout the generations causing an even wider wealth gap as we see it today.
In order to make the playing field more even, we have to get intentional about inclusive wealth. And the biggest opportunity today is to do everything possible to get Black people involved in the next wave of wealth. That’s cryptocurrency, blockchain and NFTs. That’s technology and all things Web3. That’s real estate and owning the assets in our community. That’s scaling and growing Black-owned businesses to be employers. And that’s also upskilling our youth and workforce to be prepared for the the jobs and opportunities of tomorrow.
Institute of Black Wealth is committed to creating the opportunities that will educate, support, fund, invest, train and prepare our community to not be left behind and to get involved in the new forms of commerce.
