Turning a Vision into Reality

I Heart Black Business is a corporate event production and decor company supporting the black-owned businesses in Iowa.  We seek to strengthen the black community, increase public awareness about black-owned businesses, and help develop young, black entrepreneurs.

In 2019, I Heart Black Business held a networking party for black entrepreneurs to meet and learn about each business. In 2020, I Heart Black Business  created Strut Your Roots hair show to unite stylists and entrepreneurs across the state of Iowa working in the hair industry. All vendors at the hair show were also black-owned businesses from across the US.

We are looking forward to producing many more exciting events for the black Iowa community!
