Walker's Legacy Alumni Engagement VISTA
Walker’s Legacy has a goal to ensure 10K Black women business owners are bankable by 2025. Black women entrepreneurs are the fastest growing demographic in the country. Additionally these women face the greatest hurdles with accessing capital, and have limited connections and networks which often close doors at a faster rate than their peers. Women particularly black women serve as heads of household‘s and generally make less revenue and receive lower salaries which has a ripple effect across their communities. Women who have access to the accelerator and take advantage of the free course have made a commitment to serve as a change-agent with their community. By ensuring we maintain engagement with alumni following the accelerator, we can continue to provide them with the necessary connections, access to coins and support their confidence at every stage of business.
