It all started when...

...three friends and entrepreneurs at the Georgia Institute of Technology, decided to come together to change the face of entrepreneurship.

The Black Burdell, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit focused on supporting, promoting, and cultivating black-owned businesses. It's our desire to provide existing and aspiring entrepreneurs access to knowledge, resources, and networks in an effort to efficiently build black businesses and a community of empowered entrepreneurs.

The Black Burdell, supports student entrepreneurs through our Cultivating Entrepreneurs Scholarships, promotes and empowers businesses through our EnPower Hour events nationwide, and cultivates a community of entrepreneurs with our annual Burdell's School of Entrepreneurship Conference for minority entrepreneurs.
