Founder of Atlanta-Based Incubator Has Helped Open Over 200 Black-Owned Brick and Mortar Stores Nationally

Entrepreneurship News

Meet Professor Devin Robinson, Sr., the CEO and founder of Urban Business Institute, a Black business training center that with its partners has opened over 200 brick and mortar businesses nationally, provided almost $10 million in funding and trained over 2,000 entrepreneurs.

Launched in 2012, Urban Business Institute has emerged to help black entrepreneurs battle their way to high revenues, competitiveness, and stability. They provide training classes, funding assistance, industry contacts and resources, consulting, training materials, self-help books, and more. They are what you would call a one-stop shop for black entrepreneurs. No transcripts or high school diploma is required to attend.

According to Robinson, who is also a best-selling author and consultant, “African-American business owners often face a myriad of challenges that the general market doesn’t.” For this reason, he authored Blackpreneurship: 50 Obstacles Black Entrepreneurs Face and How to Overcome Them, a book that reveals and examines the challenges of black entrepreneurs and the ways they can avoid and navigate through them.

He comments, “Much of the challenges begin at the business’ launch. Too many black entrepreneurs find themselves underfunded, outcompeted, underexposed, and more.”

Senior Consultant, Funtaine Hunter comments, “We provide highly effective training and assistance we want all persons, especially those with difficulty gaining access to college, to have access to our programs.”

Why their program is needed:

The pandemic has brought on a series of uncertainties for many. However, when it comes to the black consumer market, business couldn’t be better. Revenue is at the highest it’s ever been for businesses in the black community. This is not just due to the $1.2 trillion spending power the African-American consumer harnesses. It is also due to the behavior patterns.

African-Americans make up only about 13% of America’s population, but make up almost half of the revenue for businesses in many industry sectors and is the driving force behind the success of many corporate to medium-sized businesses.

In fact, studies show that many corporations have launched campaigns specifically targeting the African-American consumer due to African-Americans’ high propensity to spend. The issue is, even when the businesses are black-owned, even in these neighborhoods, they tend to struggle; being left behind in wealth accumulation?

The talent that exists in the Black community far outpaces other communities. Yet, capturing the business side of that talent is typically where Blacks fall short. Fortunately, there are still ways to turn that around.
