A message from Errol I. Mars, founder of BlackEntrepreneurProfile.Com

I would like to tell you about our mission and how you can help us fulfill it. Our mission is to build the most comprehensive database of successful black entrepreneurs, executives and companies. We originally started blackentrepreneurprofile.com to show successful black people who didn't play sports or entertain others for a living. Over the years we've received many emails from users who really approached the fact that this resource was available and how it has motivated them or inspired their children.

The research we perform along with the free content we produce -- takes a lot of hard work, time and money. Striving to produce high quality content requires the support of sponsors who are aligned with our vision.

We need your help to accomplish this. We welcome any financial contribution you can make to help us improve our technology and content by contributing to us using one of the following methods.

Your contributions will help our small, independent team to focus on producing great content and will allow us to continue to grow Black Entrepreneurs & Executives Profiles.
