This year marks the fourth year of the event, which was first created in part to address frustration over injustice after the murder of George Floyd in 2020. Black Entrepreneurs Day was launched later that year to “celebrate” Black business owners amid a focus on systemic racism and economic inequities.
Black Entrepreneurs Day will air November 1st at 7pm EST across multiple social media platforms including Facebook, Twitch, YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn, and Twitter!
This year’s event is backed by sponsors such as JP Morgan Chase, The General Insurance, Shopify, Lowe’s, Salesforce, T-Mobile for Business, TriNet, and McDonald’s.
