The BOSS Network announces "BOSS Impact Fund" to raise capital for 500 Black women-owned businesses over the next three years

The BOSS Network, an online community of professional and entrepreneurial women who support each other through digital content, programs and event-based networking, announces its BOSS Impact Fund to focus on investing in Black women-led businesses and preparing these entrepreneurs to build scalable, growth-aggressive companies. Its goal is to raise investment funding for 500+ Black women entrepreneurs over the next three years.

It is partnering with Sage, the global market leader for technology that provides small and medium businesses with the visibility, flexibility and efficiency to manage finances, operations and people, for the launch of the Sage “Invest in Progress” Grant Program, to remove the barriers that many entrepreneurs face by providing funding to support Black women entrepreneurs in the first five years of their business.

The Sage “Invest in Progress” Grant will also provide coaching, curriculum, and connections while removing capital barriers to help this group achieve success. The grant application process is powered by HelloAlice, a grant funding platform designed for entrepreneurs and small businesses.

The BOSS Network was founded by CEO Cameka Smith. The mission of The BOSS Network, which stands for “Bringing Out Successful Sisters,” is to promote and encourage the small business spirit and career development of women of color.  T
