According to the US Census, non-minority small to midsize businesses gross an average of $490,000 per year. While the average black owned business grosses only $72,000 per year. Now, we all know that there’s a story to all statistics. Yes, while there are less Black, African, Caribbean and African Americans in the United States, $418,000 is a LARGE gap – BlkBld Network aims to close this gap.
