Where came from the idea of founding your business?
Before I founded this brand, I had a strong desire to create a global platform for black-owned businesses to pursue their purpose and show their creativity to all, as well as get recognized and celebrated for their hard work and accomplishments which gave me the idea on the name Culture Popup Tour.
After having several nights of brainstorming and weeks of deliberations with some of my trusted allies, I decided to create the kind of platform I’d always wanted. My wonderful team and I began hosting popup events for entrepreneurs. This was a reflection of my passion for supporting small businesses and for letting them know that we see their vision and intentions to win.
It is my personal belief that such a platform is needed to encourage entrepreneurs to do even more. We have to recognize what they all are doing all around the country. With such support, it becomes easier for them to showcase their potentials, and by doing this, we will get to discover many more creative entrepreneurs in our society. This is my passion— to encourage, support, showcase, and discover.
Which aspects of your business do you think as the most important to success, what is your value?
The most important value is that we aim to establish a global platform that celebrates the stories and accomplishments of creative entrepreneurs especially in black communities all around the world. More importantly we want this done in such a way that these entrepreneurs are seen and celebrated within an enviroment of fun , to create long-lasting memorable experiences.
