HOW IT WORKS

We do this by providing Black entrepreneurs with free access to The Lonely Entrepreneur Learning Community – a one-stop shop for the knowledge, tools and support Black entrepreneurs need. The Learning Community addresses both the issues Black entrepreneurs face and all entrepreneurs face – and provides the critical elements for them to succeed:

  • KNOWLEDGE … 350 learning modules that cover both the business and personal issues entrepreneurs face – including the issues specifically faced by Black entrepreneurs (e.g., capital access, navigating network biases)

  • TOOLS … 100s of templates (e.g., business plans, legal agreements) and reviews of the top vendors and solution providers they need (e.g., accounting software)

  • ONGOING SUPPORT & COMMUNITY … through two channels – an online community and weekly group coaching – where they can get their daily questions answered

  • ACCESS … “365/24/7 anywhere access” from any desktop or mobile device. This is obviously especially important during COVID.

Having the Learning Community at every step of the Black entrepreneur’s journey significantly increases their chance of success.

  • KNOWLEDGE … over 350 learning modules that cover both the business and personal issues you face – organized for you

  • TOOLS … 100s of tools and templates and reviews of the services you need

  • ONGOING SUPPORT… through two channels – an online community and weekly group coaching – where you can get your daily questions answered

Through this initiative, corporations, philanthropies and individuals “sponsor” Black entrepreneurs to receive free access to The Lonely Entrepreneur Learning Community – which normally costs $1,200 per year. You can choose the funding amount based on the number of Black entrepreneurs you would like to support.

So as we wrestle with social justice, join us in our efforts to have an impact on economic justice by empowering the Black entrepreneur.
