What is BBD?

BBD is a community business development group with a mission to rebuild communities from the inside out through business and black culture.

There are 4 aspects to what we do:

1. Community Outreach -  We create opportunities for businesses to get involved in  localized community efforts.

2. Marketing & Business Development - We nurture businesses. We help businesses create opportunities to reach target markets and grow. We help local businesses operate effectively, get more clients, and connect to community outreach opportunities. 

3. Youth Entrepreneurship - We teach youth about business and help mold their creativity into business ideas that can be monetized. 

4. Business Networking - We help businesses help each other.

5. BBD Online - We promote and provide recommendations for the products and services of the businesses we work with.

Financial Empowerment

We believe that financial empowerment is financial freedom, and through financial freedom, communities can rebuild and create sustainable opportunities themselves. We provide a "real world" approach to business and financial education using hands-on business opportunities. 


We help people envision a pathway to success for themselves. Next, we guide them through potential barriers that may exist from their own perspectives. 

Community Empowerment

We are the change we wish to see. All of our business ventures are mutually beneficial to (1) the community (2) the BBD participant and to (3) BuyBlackDepot. We believe that in order to facilitate change, all activities performed under BuyBlackDepot must be to empower youth, as they affect effective change in the future.

The first step to living the life of your dreams is empowering yourself to become what you were meant to be. - Undi
