As a small business, it isn’t a matter of if, it is a matter of when, when will we need to seek funding in order to continue to grow.
Unfortunately, there is a HUGE disparity for women minority-owned businesses to raise quick large sums of capital that it needs for growth, in order to survive.
This is why minority-owned businesses tend to grow at much slower rates. That’s even if they manage to secure funding on their own. Most of the time a large corporation will come in and buy them out or will sell a large share of their hard-earned business only to lose control of how it’s run. This is where we are making a stand and will fight to not be, just another statistic.
