ReMix Ideas will kick off its inaugural Black Ownership Movement bus tour in September of 2022. With the goals of building new relationships, fostering collaboration and mobilizing resources, the tour will be an odyssey of witnessing, listening, and learning as entrepreneurs trek from Little Rock to visit three Delta region cities – El Dorado (9/26), Pine Bluff (9/27) and Helena West-Helena (9/28) – to engage, exchange ideas and forge connections with entrepreneurs from each locale.
Additionally, ReMix Ideas will further its goals by awarding business grants through pitch competitions and being purposeful to shop at Black-owned enterprises at the respective destinations. The Black Ownership Movement bus tour will conclude in Little Rock at the third annual Black Founders Business Summit on September 29th, 2022.
Now more than ever–I am hopeful about what we can achieve together. I am also reminded of an African proverb that says “If you want to travel fast, travel alone. If you want to travel far, travel together.” Advancing Black entrepreneurship is an ambitious and necessary journey. We will certainly travel farther together!
