How we help entrepreneurs, investors, and our community
We launched Block Investors to assist in providing resources, development, and opportunities for people to build & sustain generational wealth. Our core belief is that wealth can be generated in non-traditional forms but most people are not aware of the many ways they can build wealth for themselves and their families. We are committed to changing the narrative and helping people achieve their financial goals
1. Voice of Our Heros
In 2021 we launched the Voice of Our Heros to raise $100M in capital to assist in building strong communities and providing capital to minority-owned businesses.
2. Business Development
Access to capital and business development has continued to be a challenge for minority-owned businesses. We provide capital, consulting, and mentoring to Small Business owners
3. Real Estate
Home-ownership is a wealth-building strategy that has been used over the years. However, due to redlining, poorly structured loans, and predatory practices, this pathway was closed to many families. We provide support to individuals who desire to purchase a home or purchase an investment property.
At Block Investors, we understand the importance of community building and empowerment. Through our nonprofit, Guided Institute, we provide support, resources, and opportunities to help communities thrive.
