BPM Business Incubator: We Incubate Black-Owned Businesses

A key pillar of our Black Progress Matters mission is our Black-Owned Business Incubator Program. The BPM Founding Partners have pledged BPM's entire profits to this ambitious incubator program. Already, BPM is engaged in the partnership and financing of several significant Black-owned start-ups including UnBiasIt, Katini Skin, SmartGov Data Tech, Cocoa by CeCe, Walker Sports Audit, Black Progress Executive Resources [BPX], Black Progress Alliance, OG Culture, BPM College Advisory Program, and more.

Currently, BPM is successfully incubating Black-owned businesses in the following categories:

→ Big Data Technology → Staffing & Professional Services → Beauty & Wellness

While each opportunity will encourage additional investment, we are confident that the pledged profits of BPM will continue to provide substantial start-up funding. Ultimately, the real success of every BPM incubated business will come from the full engagement and business savvy provided by the executive Black ownership.
