What’s one valuable lesson you’ve learned that you would share with other business owners? 

Minority and women of color company owners continue to face a double bias due to both their race and gender. This in turn creates difficulties when it comes to obtaining funding, reaching out to potential partners and even networking. With that being said it is critical that you reach outside the normal boundaries using innovative approaches to build partnerships.
