The Women, LLC of Knoxville is a group of six Black women who saw that there is a lack of capital and other economic resources available for black business owners who want to expand and those who aspire to be entrepreneurs but didn’t have access to funds to get started.
We knew this was a major contributor to the 42% poverty rate among black Knoxvillians.
At the behest of Tanika Harper, we met to discuss the problem and determined that we could do something about it and that day, The Women was formed.
Our mission is to create avenues to financing for small business expansions and start-ups through various means such as crowd sourcing, community funding and real estate investment clubs.
We Are The Women.
