American Express selected 100 Black women entrepreneurs (the “Innovators) for its “100 for 100” program, which provides each entrepreneur with grants of $25,000 and 100 days of business resources, including business education, mentorship, marketing and virtual networking. American Express created this program to support Black women entrepreneurs as they work to jump start, raise capital and grow their business ventures. 


Access to mentorship and coaching is an invaluable part of an entrepreneur’s journey. Many of the Innovators have already expressed how excited they are about this part of the program. Mentors will offer support, guidance and tips tailored to the Innovators’ experience through 1:1 sessions over the course of one year, culminating in February 2022. (Innovators will have the option to stay on with mentors after the program culmination if they choose.)
