The Hub of Minority Entrepreneurship
iNvictus Forward Outreach is a non-profit organization that began providing business consulting and mentorship to ethnic minorities in 2010.
Through our belief and research we understand that entrepreneurs play a vital role in the economic development and social impact of our communities and subsequently our nation. They are key contributors to innovation, job growth, and investing in community-based initiatives. Entrepreneurship is also the most plausible vehicle toward upward mobility within one generation and creating generational wealth.
We were founded to address the inequities faced by minorities
Our goal is huge, but simple; to drastically change the landscape of minority-owned businesses on a national level.
As the non-profit arm of the iNvictus brand, our mission is to provide aid, mentoring, access to funding and support for minority owned businesses and entrepreneurs. In addition to this, iNvictus Forward Outreach provides education, consulting, and business structure development to communities with specific initiatives and outreach programs.
Mentor-based minority entrepreneurship curriculum
Almost seven years and over 500 minority-led businesses later, we continue to expand our network through strategic partnerships we cultivate to aid in our efforts to continue our impact and affect growth and sustainability amongst minority-owned firms and throughout the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
