Meet mandy archer, the founder and CEO of the Official Black Wall Street (OBWS) app. In 2017, when she was 27 years old, she resigned from her corporate job as a social media manager at Essence to start your own empire. Now just 32 years old, he’s using his brand to award $25,000 in grants to black entrepreneurs.

This August, during Black Business Month, Official Black Wall Street, the leading app connecting consumers with Black-owned businesses, will celebrate pioneering Black entrepreneurs.
