Flyte

We ensure existing Black-owned businesses and the entrepreneurs entering the market have targeted support to prepare for, and connect with, capital that will provide them with the support and terms they need to succeed. Facilitating over 20 different programs of varying size and scope, we have helped over 1,200 people from majority Black, Indigenous, Persons of Color (BIPOC) communities in New Orleans access financial education resources. In March 2021 we launched a full-scale pilot of our 12-month Entrepreneur Empowerment Program, which worked with 30 local early-stage entrepreneurs, the majority of whom were BIPOC women with children. The aim of this program was to ensure that all the participants were in the strongest position possible to access capital after 12 months. The pilot has been very successful at achieving its stated aims even before the official end of the program in March 2022 and we are launching a second, 50 business cohort in May 2022.
