The Pinky Cole Foundation Partners With Varo Bank To Get Entrepreneurs Equipped With LLCs

Aisha “Pinky” Cole is about her business, and she is paving the way for the next entrepreneurs to create their own empires. As AfroTech just told you, the founder and CEO of the Slutty Vegan franchise blessed the entire 2022 graduating class at Clark Atlanta University with Limited Liability Companies (LLCs). Already, recipients of the generous contributions have gotten their LLCs off the ground and running in less than three weeks. “When I graduated, I did not have a plan, but these people graduated with a plan.
