Equida is a nonprofit organization that supports Black entrepreneurs in starting or growing businesses through our Business Building Program which consists of one-on-one coaching and a process to successfully raise capital. We believe a community thrives when small businesses succeed.

ENTREPRENEURS WORK WITH EQUIDA TO GAIN THE SUPPORT THEY NEED TO BUILD A BUSINESS AND MAKE A POSITIVE IMPACT IN THE COMMUNITY.

 

Our coaching program covers the four areas present in every business: the Business Idea, the Organization supporting it, lasting relationships with Customers, and profitable Operations. Our simple, visual, and hands-on tools help you make decisions and take action, moving your business forward one step at a time.

Our process to raise capital is geared to help you demonstrate the viability of your business to lenders. We’ll work with you to test each area of your business so that when you approach a lending institution, you can be confident in your presentation.

 

Justice is fundamentally an economic issue.
