The Ready to Go Online Businesses are delivered as actual businesses, ready to accept online orders. The e-commerce businesses include African-Caribbean groceries, barbers, hair stylists and hair care products, and body care products.
These businesses were chosen because of their strategic importance to the Black Community and with the exception of hair styling, have been heavily dominated by business owners from other racial communities.
This is a clear sign that the Black Community requires support and direction to achieve this first stage of economic sufficiency of producing within the community the basic products and services which the community needs. The lending practices of the major financial institutions have greatly contributed to this inequity.
Our Donations program empowers underprivileged youths by providing them with online businesses that cater to the specific needs of the Black Community and in so doing match the underemployed capacity of Black Youths to the supply of goods and services which are of strategic importance to the Black Community. This will enable the individuals in the program as well as the Black Community to prosper!
Our Ready-to-Go Online Businesses are Game Changers! Our program also offers critical technology training in online e-commerce and marketing and advertising support.
Market Need: This e-commerce platform is a must for all Black Hairdressers. This is a great opportunity to start or grow your own business. The website supports online booking of hairdressing services as well as the sale of Black Women’s hair products, such as braiding hair and extensions and wigs, and accessories such as hair treatments and products.
Business Model: This e-commerce business model supports offering remote services where clients book online and Black hairdressers travel to provide their services to the clients at an agreed location. This is an extension of the traditional model of providing hairdressing services from one geographical location. Remote services enable the business owner to contract with local service providers to provide remote services in various localities and achieve the impact of having a physical store in various locations, without the added overhead costs. This also provides time-saving benefits for customers who no longer have to travel long distances to a business location.
