OUR FOUNDING HISTORY
The Black Women’s Business Alliance (BWBA) was founded by 20 co-founders in July 2014. The goal was to provide Black women with business education to help foster the entrepreneurial and economic aspirations of Black women.
After deeper research on the economic status of Black America with emphasis on Black women, in 2016 the BWBA transformed in the Black Women's Wealth Alliance (BWWA). The BWWA focuses on broader picture of wealth while recognizing entrepreneurship as an element of wealth building. In 2017 the BWWA incorporated into a Minnesota Public Benefit Corporation.
Since 2014 we have served nearly 300 Black women through our WISE Network sessions, our 2016 Goal Diggers seminar, 2016 report of the state of Black Women's Economics in Minnesota, education videos and a variety of public presentations and direct engagement
A nation can rise no higher than it's woman- The overall success of the Black community greatly depends on the well-being and economic success of Black women and girls. As a Public Benefit Corporation, we incorporate our social purpose of building wealth in the Black community by reinvesting in the education, skill, income and asset development opportunities of Black women and girls. TOGETHER we can and we shall!
