THE MORTAR MAP
Since 2014, we have worked diligently to assess the barriers and obstacles to success for Black, Brown, and Women-owned businesses; and reverse-engineered our processes to develop systems of social change delivering access to the tools and the resources needed to start and grow successful businesses.
Our goal is to make our unique system of entrepreneur training and support accessible to all entrepreneurs pushing through challenging systems of inequity while working to reach their version of the American Dream. As the nation begins to rebuild local economies after the devastation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Black, Brown, and minority entrepreneurs need support more than ever to start, grow and scale their businesses.
In the next five years, our goal is to expand the MORTAR network to 15 new cities. By establishing place-based programming in environments ripe for minority-small business growth MORTAR hopes to help entrepreneurs reach their dreams, build transferrable generational wealth for their families, and drive booming local economies.
