Welcome to Heart Month

February is Black History Month
During February, we recognize the legacy of Black Americans who laid the foundation for the activists, health care professionals, social entrepreneurs and everyday heroes — and celebrate Black Americans who are making history every day.
Throughout the month we’ll highlight the communities, small businesses, social entrepreneurs and innovators who are continuing to build a legacy of positive change through our business accelerator, scholarship program and impact investments.
