mjensen415 Posted January 26 Share Posted January 26 Hi Fiverr Community Members! Today we announced the 2023 Future Collective Cohort. This program was created to support Black entrepreneurs in maximizing their opportunities for growth by providing $24,000 in funding to each business as well as mentorship and other resources. We are so excited that in the program’s second year we’ve been able to double the cohort size from five to ten businesses. This selection process was not an easy one. We were blown away to receive nearly 4,000 applications to the program this year! After months of review, we selected the following ten businesses: Bailan - A purpose-driven food company that helps people create delicious meals and live healthier with foods that capture the rich flavors of Africa. Femigist - A purpose-driven feminine care brand that provides plant-powered menstrual management and feminine wellness products along with educational resources and supportive community. Flora and Noor - A skincare brand designed for those with melanin-rich skin and chronic skin conditions, offering halal certified, sustainable products. Look Good Live Well - A beauty-focused wellness brand offering clean, adaptogen-fueled products designed to heal and hydrate stressed-out skin. PPGJ Books - A publishing house and social enterprise that publishes, promotes, and distributes books that empower Black children to find joy in reading. Tiny Docs - An education platform providing an interactive experience designed to empower kids with age-appropriate information about various health-related issues without complex medical details and terminologies. Under Her Empire - A conscious, creative community and production house on a mission to decentralize media and entertainment by allowing consumers and brands to make socially impactful investments in the creators they love. Unoma Haus - A PropTech company creating a more sustainable and equitable future for housing and community building through two main verticals: modular homes and van conversions. Vontelle - An eyewear brand offering better-fitting vibrant, luxury frames in sizes that complement diverse faces; handcrafted to empower humanity to see the world through a cultural and global lens. Wasabi + Well - A wellness company founded to help Black women feel seen, heard, and healed through therapy, community, and courses. We’re so excited that these founders have been using Fiverr to grow their businesses for an average of 5 years and span 6 distinct industries.
