Black Owned Maine Podcast

20-10-2021 • 44 min

Episode 2 - Resources - Finding Resources and Becoming a Resource (Part A): Genius Black and Martha Bentley (Director of Economic Development at Maine Department of Economic and Community Development) discuss ways to demystify business resources, how Martha thinks about systems change, opportunities, and the responsibility to create new connections in the social change ecosystem - "loosening the roots" as we call it. They explore the roles entrepreneurs need to occupy for each other, encouraging up-and-coming businesses to practice taking risks. Follow Martha on Twitter.

One Maine Group is a strategic partnership developed by Black Owned Maine (“BOM”) and Providentia Group (“Providentia”) to cultivate BIPOC economic agency and power that has been dampened by historical inequities and systemic disparities. One Maine is launching 2021 programming to determine what works to nurture and sustain the entrepreneurial aspirations for BIPOC Mainers.
