   $500 Gift to Help Start Your New Business for 500,000 Community:

We are constantly told to take the money we spend on clothes, shoes, hair, expensive cars, and put it into investing or starting a business. Black Owned businesses are critical to true equality. You may have a great idea for a novel type of business, but do not have enough money to get it off the ground. Because finding that seed money is much harder than it seems, four times a year, we are giving our business minded members the opportunity to win $500 towards startup costs.

Join this challenge for the chance to win $500 for your new business.

 

Rules:

  • Business must be new and not already be established
  • Business must not be any type of franchise

Some of the criteria judges will consider in their evaluation include but are not limited to:

  • Clarity, completeness, and persuasiveness of the written business plan and the oral presentation
  • The market opportunity presented (is there a clear market need and a way to take advantage of that need)
  • The feasibility, uniqueness and quality of the business plan idea (is the product, technology or service feasible and does it provide something novel that gives it a competitive advantage in the market)
  • The feasibility and quality of the business model, including the financial projections
  • The financial and social return of the business (is it a real opportunity in which Blaqsbi members would invest in)

I would like to request for help to be assisted for the sake of my mother's health. She is sick with chronic Asmatic condition which makes her life difficult with prolonged cough. We wish to request for help to relocate her from our rular areas which is very cold and difficult for her to survive. All the triggers of her condition are present in that area. Helping her out to relocate will be the number one help. Thankyou in advance for your kind gesture towards a sick mother.

"Black Enterprise"

Black Enterprise is a black-owned multimedia company. Since the 1970s, its flagship product Black Enterprise magazine has covered African-American businesses with a readership of 3.7 million.[2] The company was founded in 1970 by Earl G. Graves Sr. It publishes in both print and on digital, an annual listing of the largest African-American companies in the country, or "B.E. 100s", first compiled and published in 1973.[3][4] In 2002 the magazine launched a supplement targeting teens, Teenpreneur.[5] Black Enterprise also has two nationally syndicated television shows, Our World with Black Enterprise and Women of Power.

The magazine was founded by Earl G. Graves Sr.[6] In January 2006, he named his eldest son, Earl G. Graves Jr. (known as "Butch"), the company's chief executive officer.[7] Butch joined the company in 1988 after earning his M.B.A. from Harvard University; he received his bachelor's degree in economics from Yale University in 1984. He also sits on the board of directors of AutoZone, serving as lead director and chairman of the compensation committee.

Black Enterprise has been profitable since its 10th issue. The company, headquartered in New York City, has 58 employees and had revenues of $22 million in 2017.[citation needed]
