Black Entrepreneurs Day is back... here's what to expect in 2021

The second annual Black Entrepreneurs Day presented by Chase for Business is finally here and this year we are KICKING THINGS UP A NOTCH!

This FREE global live-stream event celebrating black business and entrepreneurship will be coming at you live from Harlem’s world-famous Apollo Theater.

Here's what's going down...

10 Grants for Black Entrepreneurs and Small Business Owners

Most importantly, we will be giving away $250,000 LIVE on the show via the NAACP Powershift Grant.  

The NAACP Powershift Entrepreneur Grant is my quest to find and award 10 up-and-coming Black Entrepreneurs $250,000 LIVE on Black Entrepreneurs Day. Black Entrepreneurs across the country can apply now for the chance to win $25,000 each to help them grow and scale their businesses. In addition to the monetary compensation, winners of the grant will receive mentorship from Shark Tank’s Daymond John and join him live on air during Black Entrepreneurs Day to showcase their businesses.

Apply now for your chance to win $25,000 each. Create an account and learn more about the grant program. It takes less than 2 minutes and is well worth the chance to win $25,000 to grow your business. 

Applications close Sept 28 at 11:59pm EST!
