Tired of long wash days and excessive shedding while detangling, LaToya Stirrup and her two sisters decided it was time the world catered to their hair types. They took the idea of finger detangling and adapted it into their KAZMALEJE hair tools that became so popular they are now available in mass retail.
“It’s this level of mentorship that truly makes a difference and provides us with the insight as well as strategic thinking we need to level up. I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience and can’t wait to pay it forward to the next cohort.”
Started by Neil Hudson and his three childhood friends, Scotch Boyz began at a BBQ competition in Jamaica. After winning, people kept on reaching out for more sauce, so they decided to start their own company. Scotch Boyz, a sauce and seasoning brand, brings the unique island flavors of Jamaica to you, no matter where in the world you may be.
“Getting on shelf at a major retailer is harder than getting into Harvard and the NBA combined and the mentors I had through the Next Black Millionaires program helped make that a reality for Scotch Boyz."
With a purpose-driven mission to "undefine" the industry and democratize beauty, Dorian Morris launched Undefined Beauty, a beauty/wellness lifestyle brand focused on clean, conscious, inclusive plant magic.
