According to PR Newswire, CURLS founder and CEO Mahisha Dellinger has partnered with Beauty by Imagination to launch the Black Women Making Millions Academy: Mastering the Business, the Money, & the Mindset.
The goal is to empower 25,000 Black woman-owned businesses through a virtual initiative set to be held two days every weekend Between July 2021 and May 2022.
Both current and aspiring business owners are encouraged to register for the free event which includes panels, presentations, and workshops for business success. The activities will be hosted by a range of experts in the business including CURLS founder and CEO Mahisha Dellinger who released a statement in an official press release:
“I’m excited about this initiative because it’s about opening doors and building our communities. Black woman-owned businesses are up over 300% but only 4% of us will make it to millionaire status because of a lack of resources and there’s something wrong with that. I am starting the Black Women Making Millions Academy with the support of Beauty by Imagination because giving back is essential to who I am as a business leader, woman, wife, and mother. I’ve had so many women reach out to me through email, DM, and text asking for advice so I’m happy to be able to offer this program which will empower over 25,000 businesses – including their employees and families – and open new doors for so many. ‘To whom much is given, much is expected’ is a quote I strongly believe in and have always felt it’s important to share what I’ve learned building and leading CURLS for over 19 years. I have chosen to partner with Beauty by Imagination because they wholeheartedly support my vision to bring more education and resources to black businesses.”
The event comes on the heels of CURLS’ announcement of its historic partnership with leading manufacturer and marketer Beauty by Imagination (BBI).
