DR. CAMEKA SMITH MAKES HISTORY, RAISES $1.5 MILLION IN FUNDING FOR BLACK WOMAN-OWNED BUSINESSES

Dr. Cameka Smith, CEO and Founder of The BOSS Network, an online community of professional and entrepreneurial women who support each other through digital content, programs, and event-based networking, continues to support the success of Black women entrepreneurs as it celebrates its 14th anniversary.

In addition, she has partnered with Sage, the global market leader for technology that provides small and medium businesses with the visibility, flexibility, and efficiency to manage finances, operations, and people, for the launch of the Sage “Invest in Progress” Grant Program, a $1.5 million dollar commitment to Black woman-owned businesses for over three years.

As Black business ownership continues to grow in the U.S., Black women entrepreneurs are experiencing an increasing rise despite a challenging economic forecast.
