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.
