Fearless Commerce: A Showcase of Local Black Female Entrepreneurs

With an increase of 322% since 1997, the State of Women-Owned Business Report named Black women as the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the United States. A recent Nielson Company study, African-American Women: Our Science, Her Magic, further quantifies Black women’s power to influence the economy, media, and politics. Much like most of the country, the Twin Cities local community is rich with minority female entrepreneurs that represent a diversity of industries. 

But despite the impact this group has on the local and national economy, it has struggled to gain visibility and has largely gone unrepresented in entrepreneurial publications. Fearless Commerce seeks to change this. A nationally recognized company co-founded by two local Black female entrepreneurs, Fearless Commerce showcases local Minneapolis-Saint Paul minority women business owners by featuring their stories and highlighting their successes in industries ranging from medicine to architecture to entertainment and fitness. 

The inaugural issue of the Fearless Commerce publication launched in October 2017, and has since continued to foster innovation within the local entrepreneur community and communities of color. Keep an eye out for the next issue, available this spring.
