I’m a young black entrepreneur who would love the opportunity to buy vacant land and empty buildings to place black owned businesses into our community! Statesville, NC has lots of opportunities for small black business owners such as myself to thrive but without lenders or adequate funding our dreams are just a dream. I would like to raise money to buy/lease buildings for things such as: an art gallery, a music studio, a dance studio, and a food/clothing/ utility help ministry! If I could get enough funding for one large building I could set aside space for all of the things listed!
