Purpose of

The BOW Collective

The BOW COLLECTIVE™ wants to create a powerful sisterhood and social capital focused on bringing awareness to our businesses in a unified and strategic manner.  We want to create a platform for the media, the public/ private sector or lending institutions to look to find and do business with black women.

Join the Cause

The Bow Collective is a different kind of organization. We are members who work together to grow together. We want our Sponsors to see and support our effort by using their resources to do business with our members. Because when The BOW Collective grows, so do our communities. 

 

The Bow Collective is also creating a pipeline of further 1M+ business owners. 

 

Giving Financial resources to The BOW Collective ensures that black women’s businesses are properly capitalized to hire FTEs, expand to new locations and improve the communities within which they reside.
