I would like to tell you about BlackEntrepreneurProfile.com’s mission and how you can help me fulfill it. BlackEntrepreneurProfile.com mission is to inspire success by building a comprehensive database of profiles of successful Black entrepreneurs, executives and companies. We originally started BlackEntrepreneurProfile.com to inspire young Blacks by showcasing successful Black People who were not athletes or entertainers. My hope has always been to spread the word that you can do just as well or better in life by entering the world of business, than competing for the very limited spots in sports or entertainment. I need your help to accomplish this.
