The POWER of Black


How We Can Help


Our high-impact entrepreneurial business-readiness training will challenge and elevate each entrepreneur. There are assessments included to measure the retention of each entrepreneur. In this training there are group projects, case studies and checkpoints for each entrepreneur’s business that must be completed. Our training is unmatched and lifechanging.


Our one-on-one consulting is used to check the feasibility of each entrepreneur’s idea. We assess the idea, product or business to determine if what is being proposed can become profitable. Our monthly goal revenue for each entrepreneur’s business is $100,000. If we feel their idea, product or business is unable to generate this amount, we either help them adjust their approach or assist them in going in another direction.


Professor Devin Robinson is a certified commercial business lender and the founder of Urban Business Lending Group. His commercial business loan company can issue business loans up to $50,000,000 and real estate investment loans up to $500,000,000. Professor Devin has significant expertise and experience that the entrepreneurs he teaches will benefit from. However, we do not make access to these funds open to the general public. Entrepreneurs must have completed our training program first.


We assist entrepreneurs when it is time for them to hit the ground running. We help handle the legal business setup, location selections, lease negotiations, operational setup and most other aspects an entrepreneur will have to handle with external forces when getting their businesses off the ground.


We run an association called “The Black Franchise”. This member-based association consists of a network of professional consultants who assist our members with ongoing business challenges. Our association leverages economies of scale for marketing, obtaining high-powered professionals and more. There are requirements to remain members. Full details are disclosed upon graduation, when students become eligible to join.
