Venture Noire, a non-profit committed to assisting Black and minority entrepreneurs, is launching "In the Black", a new program designed to advance Black-owned businesses in key industries.
Made possible by a $1.3 million grant from the Walton Family Foundation, In The Black will provide eight-week courses for minority entrepreneurs that will address income equality, minority workforce creation and the racial wealth gap. Each program will feature a Northwest Arkansas showcase, which will be attended by business leaders and investors.
“Venture Noire is making significant strides in advancing inclusive entrepreneurship in Northwest Arkansas... “Through innovative programming, the organization will support local Black-owned businesses and draw minority talent to the region," said Walton Family Foundation Program Officer Yee Lin Lai. -Arkansas Money & Politics
