This year’s CURLFEST was all about glowing, growing and sharing your knowledge! During BET Her’s women in business panel, we all were given a chance to learn from successful Black girl bosses Keisha Smith JeremieJunny Hibbert and Tori Soudan.

CURLFEST 2019 was not just about promoting established beauty brands. It gave young women a chance to share their up-and-coming businesses with their fellow attendees and also gave them access to women who already have skin in the game. As the founders of CURLFEST can attest to, building a business means stepping out of your comfort zone and putting yourself out there. Not only did we learn that from the Curly Girl Collective, but we learned it at the various panels especially the “About Her Business” panel presented by BET Her!

As moderator and senior vice president of BET Her, Stacey Hellman let us all know that Black women are not only the most educated group in America, but we are also booming business owners and start businesses more than any other demographic. Unfortunately, she informed us that Black women’s businesses fail at nine times the rate of any other group due to things like “access to capital, marketing and distribution.”

Verified Google My Business profile owners in the U.S. can now add a Black-owned business attribute to their listings.

Business attributes are highlighted as icons when customers view a business’ profile on mobile, as shown below.

Why we care

Google said it has seen “a surge in online searches for Black-owned businesses” in recent months — a period in which the Black Lives Matter movement gained momentum. Distinguishing Black-owned businesses in local search may help those businesses attract visibility in Search and Maps and gain customers.

“With this attribute, our goal is to make Search and Maps more inclusive and help support Black-owned businesses when they need it most,” Jewel Burks, head of Google for Startups U.S. said in Thursday’s announcement.

Google is also adding the new attribute to its digital skills training program Grow with Digital Coaches, an initiative designed to help Black and Latinx small businesses reach new customers.
