Mandy Bowman is founder and CEO of Official Black Wall Street (OBWS), a marketplace app that is the fastest growing platform for finding and supporting Black-owned businesses in the United States. Internal reports say her app has recirculated about $10 million in sales and business services back into Black-owned businesses. Now, she is focused on expanding her services to ten other countries including Canada, South Africa, France, the UK, and the Netherlands.

In this episode, Mandy speaks with AfroTech’s Will Lucas about thriving Black small businesses and their characteristics, being a non-technical founder, and how she’s outsmarting the many on-comers in Black business directory startups.
