)-- According to a report by the National Bureau of Economic Research, “41 percent of Black-owned businesses - some 440,000 enterprises - have been shuttered by COVID-19.” EnrichHER offers funding opportunities for small businesses owned or led by women, Black Founders, and people of color.
"The time is now to put your money where your heart is to fund Black-owned and women-led businesses. This is why I've built the EnrichHER platform, so that you would have greater access to highly qualified amazing business owners. Stop what you're doing right now join the EnrichHER movement today.” - Dr. Roshawnna Novellus, EnrichHER Founder and CEO
In August, EnrichHER launched its premier Portfolio Match Program, which raised over $375,000 for seven pre-qualified companies. EnrichHER’s unique combination of coaching, connections, and capital has given businesses on their platform fuel to thrive. With generous support from PayPal, EnrichHER opened the application for its next Accelerator + Portfolio Match Program on October 22, 2020.
"We (Lillii RNB) are so grateful to Dr. Roshawnna and EnrichHER for funding us on two occasions. We are an IT Consulting firm that is profitable and generates over a million dollars a year and we could not get funded. Our acceptance into the EnrichHER Accelerator, gave us the funding we needed to hire a marketing company, which has helped us pivot the business during this pandemic." - Barbara Jones, Founder, LilliRNB
