As more Black people begin to make the decision to empower their own people and businesses, the need to find those businesses is growing daily. Everyday consumers wake up with the intent to find and support "Black Owned" businesses only to realize that they are having trouble finding them. According to analytic data provided by one of the nation's most popular directory, I have created a list of the top five states searching for Black business services and products.
One of the many obstacles that the Black Business Owners face is the lack of capital to start a business. Add to that the fact that bank loans are very difficult to secure. Crowdfunding serves as a viable means of allowing aspiring Entrepreneurs to meet the initial costs of start up or to give the business a financial boost.
