OUR MISSION

 
Color Me Urban's mission is to enable Entrepreneurs, Creatives, and Innovators to succeed; creating lasting opportunities to build Black and Brown communities by means of Entrepreneurship and Professional Development. We are a Launchpad and Sustainer for vital stages of growth, and provide a new approach to economic change. 


Immediate Goals:
With the Nation's neighborhoods rapidly changing, Color Me Urban fulfills its purpose by building on the successes and inherent talents of overlooked communities. We believe that entrepreneurship can change lives. When people have ownership in the areas where they reside, they exude passion, pride, and resilience. We strive for excellence; not only for the individuals we assist, but also for the community as a whole - That is why these following endeavors, are being sought after with moderate rigor: 


  • The Urban Economic Endowment (UEE) - *Fund for offsetting the capital disparities in African American and Latin(x) Entrepreneurship.

Long Term Goals: 
When a neighborhood grows, a lot of planning goes into renovating  historic buildings and creating magnificent green spaces that look awesome in the background of social media selfies - while little attention is paid to the existing residents. In the same way that these locations have the potential to become booming neighborhoods, the people who live in those communities have the potential to become booming enterprises.
