Meet Black In Business 805

Today we’d like to introduce you to Black In Business 805. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Founded in 2021 by Shenee Randolph @ms_naestyles, in partnership with @thealynettework to be a network and marketplace for the 805 BIPOC community. We have now become a connection hub for ourselves and our allies.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It can be a challenge to have events centered around black people in Ventura County. Due to such a small population of the African Americans in our area, we have a hard time creating space. Money and event spaces can be limited.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
We work to join together the community of the bipoc of the 805. We believe in empowering the community and growing our businesses. We want to promote networking and advancement for our businesses and nonprofit organizations around Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties.

Can you talk to us a bit about happiness and what makes you happy?
Seeing others grow and flourish in their passion, business, and community. Providing a space for people to show off their gifts amongst their people.
