This App Allows Users To Search And Support Black-Owned Businesses Around the World
If you’re looking for a one-stop-shop to support Black-owned businesses, there’s an app on the market that allows you to search and support Black-owned businesses around the world.
Rameish Budhoo created Black Nation in 2018 and fully launched it in January 2019. It’s a business directory and social app where users can search dozens of categories, including beauty, shopping, photography, restaurants, fitness, and more.
“People in and out of our community want to support black-owned brands, but have an extremely difficult time locating them,” Rameish told Black Business. “Black Nation is a social business directory and social media platform. You can hang out, find businesses to support, but also have the chance to win gifts, share updates, stories, and much more.”
What makes the app unique is its social element that allows businesses to interact directly with their followers and customers. Businesses can create giveaways and interact with users directly on the app, according to Rameish.
“This App was built to empower, celebrate each other’s success, and to reinvest in ourselves and our community,” a statement reads. “It is time to reclaim our Black People Magic and build our community in the process. We are powerful, we are resilient, we are BLACK NATION.”
Black Nation is a free app that is available only on the App Store for the iPhone and iPad.
