Black Business Boom is a social enterprise dedicated to helping Black-owned small businesses flourish by providing a comprehensive support system. Founded by Danielle McGee, an accomplished small business advocate, entrepreneur, and professor at Tennessee State University, Black Business Boom aims to bridge the gap between Black-owned businesses and the resources, training, and mentorship they need to succeed.

The Birth of a Vision

Danielle McGee’s inspiration for Black Business Boom came from her own challenges and experiences as an entrepreneur. She saw a need to create a platform that would assist Black-owned businesses in overcoming common hardships, ensuring they had access to the support and tools necessary for their growth and success.

Initially, Black Business Boom was conceived as a “Groupon for Black-owned businesses,” but as the team began onboarding companies, they identified gaps and pivoted towards becoming a full-fledged Black Business Support System.

Supporting Growth and Success

Black Business Boom’s primary objectives are to provide opportunities for Black-owned businesses and help their corporate partners leverage Black owned businesses to  meet supplier diversity goals. The brand has expanded to include Boomin University, a non-profit organization offering free training, coaching, and mentorship to Black-owned small businesses. Additionally, Black Owned Nashville, a directory of over 1500 Black-owned businesses, was established to promote and increase spending within the community.
