Nikki Porcher, the founder of nonprofit organization Buy From A Black Woman, has made it her mission to empower, educate, and inspire Black Women Business Owners; and to raise awareness for the need to support and #BuyFromABlackWoman because Black Women deserve advocacy that extends beyond words.
Buy From A Black Woman equips Black Women with the tools and resources they need to be successful in business, and has helped Black Women Founders drive more than $2.7 Million in revenue in just the last year alone. Her nonprofit provides educational programs, funding, an online directory that makes Black Women-Owned Businesses easier to find, and it’s home to one of the largest communities of Black Women Business Owners in the US and across the globe.
As a veteran and former public school teacher, Nikki is no stranger to serving at the highest level. She now uses the skills she gained navigating those challenging environments to create a more equitable world for Black Women.
Her list of accomplishments include securing partnerships with H&M and Goldman Sachs, helping 600+ founders boost their online visibility, and leading the way as one of the first platforms dedicated to Black Woman-Owned Businesses with her online directory. However, her ability to keep going and inspire others in the process matters more to her.
Nikki is also a sought-after Business Consultant, DEI Trainer, and Speaker.
