The Coalition to Back Black Businesses (CBBB) is a multi-year initiative to support Black small business owners as they recover from the COVID-19 pandemic and chart a path forward. After distributing nearly 1,100 grants, in its second year, CBBB continues to offer grants and mentorship through the Ureeka coaching platform. This panel will discuss the significant impact that CBBB has had, the importance of companies to support the small business community, insights regarding what small businesses need to be successful, and how you can help strengthen the Black-owned business community.
