Blackspace is committed to promoting and propelling black entrepreneurs and artists in Columbus, Ohio.
We know that real change must happen systematically at the local level. Blackspace is a small business incubator working to affect socioeconomic equality in Columbus by specifically promoting and propelling locally owned black small businesses and black local artists. The centuries of systematic injustice towards people of color in this country are reflected in the poor condition of black owned business in Columbus. In order to ensure that local black entrepreneurs and artists have easy access to the resources and education required to optimize their success, Blackspace will host a shared event and workspace, relevant and informative workshops and a variety of promotional events. We’ve already started working on a comprehensive online directory of black owned business in Columbus. Blackspacecolumbus.com is currently accepting submissions to the directory. There is no cost to be included and all Columbus based black owned businesses and entrepreneurs are encouraged to add a listing as soon as possible. We are also working on building a diverse pool of volunteers who are experts in various fields to teach workshops, as well as raising money to secure our shared space. We are looking for 2500 people who are willing to show their dedication to socioeconomic equality by contributing just $10 to our JUST10 crowdfunding campaign to support local black entrepreneurs and artists. Take action now to show your commitment to socioeconomic equality in Columbus.
