As I sit here on my couch and scroll social media, I am EXTREMELY thrilled by the number of Black Business Owners (BBO) and entrepreneurs on my timelines. Since I now fall into that category it led me to want to quantify how many BBO there were in the US in 2020. To my surprise, the last time BBO were reported was back in 2015 and at that time the US Census reported that there were 2.6 million. If I went by that number with today's population, that's less than 13% BBO!
It made me wonder why haven't there been any updates to those figures? Why don't we have more BBO & entrepreneurs?
