The Vision

The Innovation Center

Innovation Center will be a place where women can bring their vision to life.

The center will be a creative co working space that will offer innovative resources.

There are no affordable creative spaces 

available for entrepreneurs.

Minority owned women businesses are growing.

We want to provide a space where women can fully launch and complete a project.

Our goal is to provide development courses and programs that will provide the skills needed to succeed.

We want to help women achieve a place in the industry.

We propose to build an affordable innovation center where creatives can be themselves and EVOLVE!

Features:

  • A Fitness Gym 

  • A Film & Photography Studio

  • A Fashion Studio/ Warehouse

  • The Vision Room (Branding)

  • Creative Workspaces

  • Technology Development

  • Event Space

  • Child Care

Mocked by the world

Ignored

Disrepected

Not feeling valued

Unprotected

Unsupported

There is rarely a moment when Black Women are allowed to be themselves.

Some corporations won't allow women to wear their natural hair.

Some industries just won't hire...

change

Imagine being

 discriminated against &

overlooked for opportunities 

because of the appearance

 you were born with. 

Many people in the world suffer from disadvantages as well, however minority women issues are overlooked and never brought to light.

The Truth

  • For decades, minority women have had to work twice as hard.

  • Despite the challenges minority women face, most women eventually find a way to start their business. But some women simply give up. 

  • The starting process generally takes twice as long due to the lack of support and limited resources.
