CURLS Invests In New Initiative For Black Women Business Owners

The history-making hair care brand celebrates 19 years of success with a free training and resource program to create wealth and build a community valued at $450 million.

Hair care brand CURLS is launching its Black Women Making Millions Academy: Mastering the Business, the Money & the Mindset initiative. The goal of the initiative is, above all, to empower 25,000 Black women business owners. The groundbreaking virtual initiative will take place for two days every weekend between July 2021 through May 2022. Current and aspiring business owners can register for FREE via the Black Women’s Making Millions Academy website. Participants will attend panels, presentations and workshops for business success. The panels are hosted by a range of business experts, including CURLS Founder and CEO Mahisha Dellinger herself. The initiative is in partnership with Beauty by Imagination.

On a mission to empower Black women business owners

Mahisha Dellinger and CURLS are undoubtedly passionate about educating, equipping and empowering Black women business owners. The company remains committed to giving back to the Black community and empowering and elevating Black business owners. The educational platform will have MBA style courses, seminars, workshops and mentorship from key industry leaders.

“I’m excited about this initiative because it’s about opening doors and building our communities. Black woman-owned businesses are up over 300 percent but only 4 percent of us will make it to millionaire status because of a lack of resources and there’s something wrong with that,” said CURLS Founder and CEO Mahisha Dellinger.

“I am starting the Black Women Making Millions Academy with the support of Beauty by Imagination because giving back is essential to who I am as a business leader, woman, wife and mother. I’ve had so many women reach out to me through email, DM and text asking for advice so I’m happy to be able to offer this program which will empower over 25,000 businesses – including their employees and families – and open new doors for so many. ‘To whom much is given, much is expected’ is a quote I strongly believe in and have always felt it’s important to share what I’ve learned building and leading CURLS for over 19 years. I have chosen to partner with Beauty by Imagination because they wholeheartedly support my vision to bring more education and resources to black businesses.”

Giving back to Black women business owners

Above all, this historic partnership will bring increased awareness, product accessibility, innovation and opportunities to give back to the community. It will particularly focus on the next generation of Black women business owners.
