We always recommend startups use these, and find other free grants available for Black owned businesses.
I felt like I was in the middle of my favorite Star Trek: The Next Generation movie. The one where Captain Kirk and Picard get pulled into the “NEXUS,” a heavenly place where everything is perfect. This was my chance to open an establishment that rivaled Captain Kirk’s nirvana. “Oh, my goodness,” I thought, “I have to do this”!
