We recently spoke with @venturebeat about how OBBF is working with corporate partners to support #BlackOwned businesses in the East Bay and beyond. Link in bio!

We’re excited to announce a new platform for Black entrepreneurs launched in partnership with Oakstop Alliance and @blackbusinessfund !

Oakland Black Business Fund is proud to support the development and launch of @blackculinarycollective, led by chef @reignfree_  of @thereddoorcatering510 

The Black Culinary Collective was featured today in the @sfchronicle @mercnews @thebolditalic @sfbusinesstimes and @eater_sf 

“The new Black Culinary Collective is led by chef Reign Free of the Red Door Catering, who was inspired by the fellow Black entreprenuers she saw hustling with cottage foods businesses and other Instagram-based efforts during the pandemic. As her catering company’s business fell, she thought about how she could maximize her 5,000-square-foot kitchen space while helping other Black cooks.”

Inaugural members of the collective include: @teaswithmeaning, @babybeanpie, @thefinalsauce, and @poundbizness 

“I’m hoping to inspire others to see people, to go beyond your station,” Free said. “A lot of times we just work in our bubble and we don’t really take time to see and help other people. I’m actually looking forward to learning a lot from them myself.”

Oakland Black Business Fund is constantly learning from the businesses we support and we’re excited to continue supporting Reign and the Black Culinary Collective!

Check out @oakstop founder, Trevor Parham in this talk with Marquesa Finch of @pyrium.co  and @valencecommunity about equity crowdfunding on Friday March 5th at 12pm.

Equity crowdfunding is quickly staking it’s ground in venture capital. As we move into the era of the retail investor, more and more business financing will be backed by regular people. It is an opportunity for anyone who is interested in participating in the venture process to benefit off the success of high growth companies. In light of recent events like Robinhood’s explosive growth, Bitcoin’s popularity, and the now infamous GameStop short squeeze, it’s clear that we are at  the dawn of the era of the retail investor.

★★ reviews ★★

Excellent customer service and answers every call and question! Signing up was easy and quick. I was able to speak to with Shane who did an amazing job of explaining my membership, how to access my mail, etc. THIS is how you operate a business. Definitely a great decision.

Coworking Member

The space is awesome and very unique. It blends the artist performance space and tech startup culture with Oakland’s edginess and beauty.

You get the professionalism and capacity to get high level work done but without the pretentiousness and sterileness of a traditional tech work setting. Cost was also pretty reasonable and probably much cheaper than comparable spaces.

Lance D.

Event Guest

Got to play cello here during one of their art exhibits. Wonderful space they have and outstanding group of people organizing it! I had a blast playing in their space and meeting and talking with the people there.
