Black Business

Despite facing systemic barriers and discrimination, Black entrepreneurs have built successful businesses that have significantly impacted their communities and the economy. Here are the stories of 10 Black businesses that have overcome challenges and achieved great success, inspiring others to follow in their footsteps.

The Honey Pot Company

The Honey Pot Company is a Black feminine care brand founded by Beatrice Dixon in 2014. Dixon was inspired to create the company after suffering from bacterial vaginosis and being unable to find a natural remedy. The Honey Pot Company offers a range of natural and organic feminine care products, including washes, wipes, and menstrual products. In 2019, the company received a $1 million investment from a group of investors led by singer and actress Queen Latifah. The Honey Pot Company has since expanded its product line and is now sold in major retailers such as Target and Walmart.

Blavity Inc.

Blavity Inc. is a media company founded by Morgan DeBaun in 2014. The company started as a blog aimed at Black millennials but has since grown into a media empire with several brands and platforms. Blavity Inc. now includes websites such as Blavity News, 21Ninety, and Travel Noire and events such as the annual AfroTech conference. In 2018, the company raised $6.5 million in funding and has continued to expand its reach and influence in the media industry.

The Lip Bar

The Lip Bar is a Black beauty brand founded by Melissa Butler in 2012. The brand started as a response to the lack of diversity in the beauty industry and has since grown into a successful business with products sold in Target stores across the United States. The Lip Bar gained national attention after appearing on the television show Shark Tank in 2015, and although they did not secure a deal with the investors, the exposure helped boost their sales and brand recognition. Today, The Lip Bar continues to innovate and expand their product line while promoting inclusivity and diversity in the beauty industry.

McBride Sisters Collection

The McBride Sisters Collection is a Black wine company founded by sisters Robin and Andréa McBride. The sisters were raised on opposite sides of the world – Robin in California and Andréa in New Zealand – and didn’t meet until they were adults. Despite their different upbringings, they shared a passion for wine and eventually decided to start their own wine company. The McBride Sisters Collection has since become the most prominent black-owned wine company in the United States, with its wines sold in major retailers and restaurants nationwide. The sisters have also launched a foundation to support women in the wine industry and promote diversity and inclusion.


Mahisha Dellinger founded CURLS, a natural hair care brand for women with curly hair. Dellinger started the company in 2002 after struggling to find products for her curly hair. Despite facing numerous challenges, including rejection from investors and difficulty breaking into the mainstream market, Dellinger persevered and grew CURLS into a successful business. Today, CURLS products are sold in major retailers, and the company has won numerous awards for its quality and effectiveness. Dellinger is also a sought-after speaker and author, sharing her story and inspiring others to pursue their dreams.
