Exciting News from the Russell Innovation Center for Entrepreneurs (RICE)!

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve just secured a major boost toward our mission to #BuildBlackBusiness! 🌟 Thanks to the incredible support of PayPal in collaboration with the Southern Communities Initiative (SCI) we’ve been awarded a generous $1 million grant that will fuel the creation of a groundbreaking initiative: The PayPal Retail Academy. This platform is set to reshape the landscape of retail entrepreneurship! 🛍️ With a focus on fostering innovation, nurturing growth, and scaling ventures, this Academy will provide invaluable insights and resources to entrepreneurs.

We will be launching this initiative in January of 2024.
