Ready & Resilient: Tackling the State of Black Business in the Wake of COVID-19
Over 40% of black businesses closed during the Covid-19 pandemic because they lacked “resilience" or the ability to withstand major economic shocks.

ConnCORP’s Economic Justice Fund (EJF) is targeted for established black-owned businesses that have been in operation for at least twenty-four (24) months. The goal of the fund is to create a cadre of black businesses that are economically resilient to withstand economic recessions as well as being wealth and wage generators for their owners, employees,
and the community at large.

In this panel discussion with successful entrepreneurs, we're tackling the state of Black Businesses in America and Connecticut.
