Black Entrepreneurs Day: 2022's BIGGEST Event



The third annual Black Entrepreneurs Day presented by Chase for Business is happening soon. And let me just say that describing it as bigger and better is an understatement…

This FREE global live-stream event celebrating black business and entrepreneurship is back live from Harlem’s world-famous Apollo Theater.

Here's what's going down...

6 Grants for Black Entrepreneurs and Small Business Owners

Most importantly, we will be giving away $150,000 LIVE on the show via the NAACP Powershift Entrepreneur Grant.

The NAACP Powershift Entrepreneur Grant is my quest to find and award 6 up-and-coming Black Entrepreneurs $150,000 LIVE on Black Entrepreneurs Day. Black Entrepreneurs across the country had the chance to apply 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 me (Daymond John) and join me live on air during Black Entrepreneurs Day to showcase their businesses.

Tune in to Black Entrepreneurs Day to find out which Black entrepreneurs have been awarded $25,000 and hear directly from them who they are, what they do and how their business is making a difference.

Live Musical Performance

It wouldn’t be #BlackEntrepreneursDay without a special live musical performance. This year we are bringing you the one, the only – Big Sean! And he’s ready to put on a performance like you’ve never seen before.

Tune In

The one-of-a-kind historic live-stream is a must-see. It’s all going down on Thursday October 27th, 2022 at 7PM ET, live from Harlem’s World Famous Apollo Theater. Black Entrepreneurs Day will be completely free and available worldwide beginning at 7PM ET on Facebook.


I could never do this without all of our amazing partners! Thank you for all the support and for continuing to be visionaries leading the charge on entrepreneurship!
