Forbes' MeiMei Fox features 2050 Wealth Partners as one of the top black-owned businesses to support.
The Black Lives Matter movement and current global protests advocating for racial justice and equality have generated a groundswell of support for Black-owned businesses. The 2012 US Census Report revealed 2.6 million Black or African-American owned businesses in America, up 35% from 2007. You may have heard of many larger companies that fit the bill, but what about small to medium-sized businesses? Today in honor of Juneteenth and going forward, you can vote with your dollars by giving your support to these 15 companies with Black founders and owners. They offer everything from software infrastructure to book publishing to PR services, to natural skincare products and cars that help out single moms.
2050 Wealth Partners
Rianka Dorsainvil is on a mission to make financial planning accessible to Millennials. Her fee-for-service only company, Your Greatest Contribution (YGC), helped young thriving professionals get their financial households in order. Recently, Dorsainvil partnered with another women of color, Lazetta Rainey Braxton, to form 2050 Wealth Partners, a fully virtual financial planning firm. Dorsainvil’s writing and work has been featured in Black Enterprise, CNBC, Financial Advisor, US News & World Report, Women’s Health, and many other publications. Advocating for financial literacy and helping people of her generation to achieve their financial goals is, Dorsainvil says, her life purpose. “Traditional financial planning firms do not take on clients with little to no investable assets, leaving a wealth of thriving young professionals in need,” she explains. “I am able to impact young people today, and that’s going to have a ripple effect for the rest of their lives.”
