A post-covid economy brings with it exciting opportunities for black owned business to thrive. The ability to adapt and innovate in this new era of business is fundamental to the success of the black owned economy.

60% of new businesses fail in the first 3 years. One of the contributing factors is a lack of support. The BLOWN Business Network will remain FREE to use forever. This will ensure the network is here to support black owned startups and establish businesses through difficult and testing times.
