About CITB

We seek to understand what black-owned businesses need to grow and thrive, direct them to resources to help them chose programs and mentors, and get on a growth path.

At CEOs in the Black, we are committed to empowering and supporting small business owners and entrepreneurs of color. Our community-based organization is dedicated to creating a diverse and inclusive business environment, fostering growth opportunities, and expanding economic prospects for underrepresented communities. We achieve this by providing comprehensive programs, personalized mentoring, strategic partnerships, advocacy, and micro-loans.

Our Purpose

CEOs in the Black is a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering economic equity and bridging opportunity gaps for communities of color.

Our purpose is inspired by the US Chamber's Equality of Opportunity Initiative and the impact of the Black Lives Matter movement across multiple cultures.

Through our comprehensive support, we build communities and empower individuals to flourish, generate growth opportunities, and cultivate lasting generational wealth.
