Melanin Enterprise, the Black Professional Social Network launched a mobile app in 2018 that provides global visibility and local advertising to Black owned businesses and organizations only! EMichele Paul, the owner, wanted to make sure that everyone knew that this wasn't "just a business directory" so she named it the Buy Black City Guide. The city guide makes discovering Black-owned businesses a breeze whether you are relocating, on vacation, traveling, or want to discover new Black-owned businesses in your city. While it does provide Black-owned businesses global visibility it advertises locally so black dollars can be recycled in local communities benefiting local families.
How does the mobile app differ from the thousands of groups on Facebook that you're probably already in looking for Black-owned businesses or other apps that are out there? Well, whether you are home or traveling, you will be able to instantly find Black-owned businesses near you just by opening the app (don't forget to turn your location on)!
Melanin Enterprise also hosts monthly game nights that bring the whole city together to support Black-owned businesses and build community alliances!
"Sip -N Play game nights are monthly events that inspire collective economics & unity"
We are strengthening our communities all around the country city by city and Charlotte, NC is LEADING the way! Melanin Enterprise has been called the new Black Wall Street and Green Book by the members and business owners in our network and EMichele Paul, founder and owner, takes that distinction seriously and vows to uphold the mission, traditions, and values of both.
"We use our phones and apps to do everything that is important to us, from keeping in touch with friends to paying bills, and now, we can use them to own our own destiny, celebrate our culture, create generational wealth for our children, support our businesses, and connect with like-minded people in our communities around the globe...in PEACE!" EMichele Paul
In 2019, ME helped over 1800 conscious consumers recycle over $32,000 back into black-owned businesses and assisted putting 14 people back to work! In 2020, our goal is to replicate our success in other cities by partnering with black-owned businesses to bring our events to their cities. All of our events are hosted at black owned venues!
Business owners do not have the same view as members. You will not be able to see the entire network of businesses in your area unless you create a "members" profile.
Melanin Enterprise, the Black Professional Social Network is currently available on Google Play and the Apple Store. Here’s a quick link to download the app: http://onelink.to/ess52w
