Love is a verb

Just Do Business

Dedicated to creating a pathway for ending the generational poverty of black communities across the country, by proving that the Free Enterprise System works for everyone.

The Next Great American Movement

Imagine how much better our country will be when we prove that the Free Enterprise System works for everyone, through the voluntary cooperation of people of good will.

A mission worthy
of our best efforts

From the Abolitionist to the Civil Rights movement- there has never been a movement that fights for equal ECONOMIC opportunity until now. It’s called ALPHA MISSION.

Thanks to some of history’s great thinkers, we have made progress in the past, and that is replicable today if we do the same things that they did.
