ReMix Ideas will kick off its second Black Ownership Movement bus tour on March 27, 2023. With the goals of building new relationships, fostering collaboration and mobilizing resources, the tour will be an odyssey of witnessing, listening, and learning as we visit the following Northwest Arkansas cities – Fayetteville, Springdale, Bentonville, Rogers and Fort Smith to engage, exchange ideas and forge connections with Black-Owned businesses, city leaders, entrepreneur support organizations (ESOs) and key stakeholders from each locale. The tour will conclude in Little Rock on March 31. 2023.
During the NWA stops, the tour will further its goals by awarding business grants through pitch competitions and being purposeful to shop at Black-owned enterprises at the respective destinations.
Here is the schedule for the “Black Ownership Movement” bus tour:

Wednesday, March 29: – Bentonville and Rogers

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!
