John Hope Bryant vows to create one million Black entrepreneurs, businesses with $130 million fund with Shopify

John Hope Bryant, founder of Operation HOPE, pledges to use a $130 million fund, in partnership with Shopify, to create one million Black entrepreneurs and Black-owned businesses.

“Up from Nothing; The Untold Story of How We (All) Succeed is in part my story but in large part Black America’s story and also the forgotten America story. I share a lot of my personal testimonies including my ups and my downs as well as some moments of embarrassment, or what I like to call, moments of opportunity,” said Bryant.

Bryant challenges that America is still the Land of Opportunity but we must turn away from distractions, such as political in-fighting or racial and class divisions, and focus on what we can control. – source
