Workshop Owner


All Things Black and Beautiful (ATBB) was founded in Dallas, Texas, in 2022, by Tolu Akindunni when she saw the increasing disparity between the rate of growth of Black-owned businesses and the lack of access to resources to propel them forward. 

Why Black-owned Businesses?

Many ventures in the black and African communities are operated as ‘side hustles’ or micro-businesses. They have limited visibility, access to funding and networks that will propel them towards a more sustainable future. 


Our Aim is to Turn This Around

By surfacing key topics, we can unearth the issues that are native to black and African-owned businesses, generating insights that will drive action. Through collaboration, we are building an ecosystem of thriving, buoyant enterprises that create generational wealth and economic impact.
