The McBride Sisters want to help you secure the bag, sis.
The Black sister wine duo, who’ve been killing the game for over 15 years, launched their #SheCanThrive2020 grant program to support other Black-women entrepreneurs whose businesses have been impacted as a result of COVID-19.
“We’ve built our personal value system on sisterhood, empowerment, tenacity, and economic education.” Andréa McBride John, Founder and CEO of McBride Sisters Collections stated.
“We need to support our community by providing access to capital to help protect the fastest growing economy in America, Blackwomen owned businesses,” added Robin McBride, Founder and President of McBride Sisters Collections.
The #SheCanThrive2020 grant program will help scale qualifying Black-women-owned businesses with a $10,000 investment towards some of the areas of entrepreneurship that Black women find to be most challenging to fund, including technical support, digital marketing, branding and inventory.
Over a decade from their entrepreneurial start in the wine industry, the sisters have worked to bring wine lovers the products they need and love. And now, they want to help other Black women do the same — no matter the industry. To qualify for a #SheCanThrive2020 grant, all you have to do is own and operate a small business, complete the grant application, and present an idea of what they need to do to thrive after the effects of the coronavirus closures and how funds will be put to use.
