Black-owned businesses are vital pillars of their communities, yet systemic barriers add to the difficulty for owners and entrepreneurs aspiring to reach their professional and business goals. JPMorgan Chase is working to help dismantle those roadblocks and promote a more inclusive economy and equitable future.

Through our $30 billion Racial Equity Commitment, we’re helping to drive inclusive growth by:

  • Expanding affordable housing
  • Increasing homeownership
  • Growing small businesses
  • Improving financial health
  • Accelerating workforce diversity

Investment alone is not enough, however. Holistic support systems are critical to ensuring business owners can drive growth, create wealth and make lasting impacts in their communities.

The resources we’ve gathered below offer insights and stories to inform and inspire. We are highlighting examples of strong leadership, resilience, creativity, strategic planning, networking and certification programs. By learning from others who have built successful companies and overcome challenges, future generations of entrepreneurs can set their own paths toward success.
