Why This Matters
Currently there are approximately 83,000 BIPOC manufacturers in the U.S. Of that number, less than 2% receive funding from either investors or from lenders. That translates to less than 2% of these manufacturers who ever make it into Big Retailers like Target, Walmart or into grocery channels.
What Can We Do About It
The founder of Good Trouble Gourmet recently got the crazy idea to use our platform to create an independent Good Trouble Fund through a “Pop for Change Campaign” to help underrepresented manufacturers scale into retail.
