Entrepreneurship, along with many other sectors, is not equitable. Black individuals and businesses have to continuously overcome structural racism and other systemic barriers that add more difficulties to the already challenging field of entrepreneurship. The following is a list of local vegan and vegan-friendly businesses, organizations, and makers that are Black-owned, founded, and led. As always, your support of these businesses  is not limited to purchasing goods and services, though we highly encourage you to do so.

Beyond purchases, you can support small business through: word-of-mouth, intentionally engaging with their social media content, leaving positive reviews on their websites, offering relevant resources and paid opportunities when appropriate, and other actions that come from building a personal connection and relationship to a person and their professional endeavors.
