I want to be able to create wealth in my community. That’s what I’m passionate about. I know that the real way to create wealth is through investments. One thing that we don’t know as a people, in general, is that we are kept out of deals because you have to be an accredited investor to invest in early-stage deals. Now there is a way for Black people to get in on early-stage deals and to start creating real wealth. I want to give the people in my community a chance to invest in a tech company and get money. When I exit, I want to make some Black millionaires. I want those checks to go to my people.
