Success Circles Philosophy
Women of Color are starting businesses at higher rates than anyone else, yet we get less capital, have fewer successful exits, and produce less income for owners. It's time for this to change. Access to capital is a legacy challenge with roots deep in our American history. While there have been innovative capital solutions in recent years, capital constraint remains a defining problem for the majority of Women of Color entrepreneurs. It's time we attack this problem from a different angle. We can share our expertise to help fill knowledge gaps, we can roll up our sleeves to help get things done, we can consciously create the connections that open doors to opportunity. Let's not just talk about wanting to help, let's be the help that Women of Color entrepreneurs need to succeed. It's time to change the way we do business, together.
