Two Black Women Entrepreneurs Talking

Consulting with Purpose

At GTB Advisors we partner with forward-thinking organizations and institutions to create strategies around finance, ecosystem building, innovation, early-stage investing, and philanthropy that guide communities of color to the financial and social capital they need to grow successful businesses. 


Over the last decade, we’ve worked with hundreds of small businesses and nonprofits to create inclusive spaces for women and people of color which: 

  • Define existing and develop new pathways to resources in support of the fastest-growing demographic of startup business founders in the country.

  • Offer guidance around how to access and navigate networks necessary to grow

  • Advocate for, fund, and design initiatives that provide equitable access to opportunities to create a more prosperous and healthy future for communities of color. 

  • Motivate, inspire and empower more Black women to imagine and pursue their own image of entrepreneurial success.
