Wow, this is a piece of incredible news. Thanks Lisa.
Yes it is incredibly racist
thank you Cyber Geak…….
I see all the information about black owned business but is this only open to a specific ethnic group. Is your program open to Latinos? I have hired a graphic designer for my website. Also there is also a relative who is also starting her business. Please clarify.
Yes I asked that question! The program for Black Owned Businesses is a start, and Amazon plans to expand to include other ethnic groups. Thanks for the question and I hope I clarified. Amazon didn’t have a time line on when that would happen.
This is just another example of blatant descrimination. Just amazing how this is “acceptable”, but if one was to startup and call it a White Bsiness Accelerator, there would be lawsuits breaking it up.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful information about Amazon Black Business Accelerator Program. It covered almost everything we need to know.
Thank you, please let us know if you use the program!

Good afternoon. I am a sole proprietor of a very small upstart company in San Diego, CA My company is called Healing And Recovery Wraps or H.R.WRAPS. Our units are called “Sportsstraps” which is also our branding and trademark. Our units hold ice packs, bags or ice, hot water bottles or heat pack on an affected part of the body… the problem is we have had scratch through 7 years of patents, research and development, loss of company support to get the product to this point. I am interested in sharing our product but more interested in being shown how to build it out. I am not able to attach a photo but would be more than happy to do later.
Enough is enough.This is getting out of control.If white people did the things black people do now days, their would be riots and lawsuits.I think it’s time white people start boycotting anything to do with black people.
I am trying to find out how to apply for grant assistance through the Black Business accelerator. Program. Can someone please reach out to me concerning this matter. Thank you
The contact if through Amazon.
Being Black and the owner of a small business this is unacceptable. Today should we should be better than pushing racism. I’m ashamed of this organization.
