About
HBCU Wall Street is a mission-focused platform that uses live events, digital and social media to provide financial literacy, entrepreneurship and investing based solutions for stimulating local Black economies and communities.

Historically, economic improvement has permeated outwards from HBCUs and into their host communities. For that reason, we decided to start there. With our nation's HBCUs.

Our mission is to be an advocate for the promotion, growth, welfare & creation of African-American, HBCU student and alumni owned businesses, entrepreneurship & economics.
Our Why

We wanted to create a mental paradigm shift amongst the HBCU community, alumni and stakeholders. No longer do we think it is simply OK to just get a degree and then a good job. At HBCU Wall Street we preach get a degree and then create opportunities for yourself and others. HBCUs are credited with creating the American black middle class. Reports state that HBCU’s have produced 40% of African-American members of Congress, 40% of engineers, 50% professors at PWIs, 50% lawyers, and 80% of judges. Imagine if there were a place that promoted to them the importance of financial literacy, investing and entrepreneurship. That's our why. To be that place.

Initatives

Balance Sheet of Life HBCU Tour

HBCU Realty Fund

The HBCU Realty Fund aims to revitalize the communities around our nation’s HBCUs. In order for our institutions to remain competitive and attractive with other institutions, we must remove the stigma often associated with their host communities. By decreasing the dilapidated housing around HBCUs, we can help decrease poor public services, street crime and general economic suffering. Additionally, many prospective students and parents will have to focus less on the safety and appearances of the communities around our historical institutions and more on the quality of education.
