Join Local Entrepreneurs to Discuss Black Business Growth in Nashville

Nashville, TN – Corner to Corner, a community-led nonprofit co-creating meaningful economic growth with historically underestimated Nashvillians through knowledge, tools, and networks, is hosting a leadership luncheon to discuss Black entrepreneurship and business growth in Nashville. The event will take place on Wednesday, April 26 from 12 – 1:30 pm CDT at Bass, Berry & Sims PLC located at 150 3rd Avenue South Suite 2800 in Nashville.

The luncheon will feature guest speakers Danielle McGee with Black Business Boom, Carlos Partee with Nashville Black Market, and Shana Berkeley, Executive Director of Corner to Corner. Hosted by Joshua Mundy, co-founder of Pivot Technology, the event will cover topics such as the importance of having access to a brick-and-mortar store, women in business, and crossing the 7-figure threshold.

Corner to Corner aims to launch 10,000 Black-owned businesses in Nashville over the next 10 years. According to a study by Goldman Sachs, only 0.5% of single Black women own businesses, compared to 13% of single White men. Executive Director of Corner to Corner Shana Berkeley believes this is not a talent gap, but an opportunity gap, and aims to close that gap by launching 10,000 Black entrepreneurs in Nashville.

“Studies show that Nashville’s economy has space for 10,000 more Black entrepreneurs,” says Berkeley. “In order to attain equity in Nashville, we all have to work to be part of the solution to equip and uplift Black entrepreneurs in turning their money-making dreams into a reality.”

The event is sponsored by Alliance Bernstein, Bass, Berry, & Sims, and DemiRebel. Attendees will be able to tap into their community and see how their journey and story can add to the vision of launching 10,000 Black-owned businesses in Nashville.
