About BlackBizScope

The number one rule of entrepreneurship is to find a problem and solve it. When the lack of an interactive platform to support black owned businesses on social media was determined to be a problem by its founders, BlackBizScope became an instant solution.

Pamela J. Booker, CEO and founder of the all-natural hair care line, Koils by Nature; Adeea Rogers, speaker, consultant, and founder of the International Hair Meetup Day; and Christine St. Vil, speaker and CEO of Moms ‘N Charge, a coaching outfit for women, are the three masterminds behind BlackBizScope. Each a successful entrepreneur in her own right, the co-founders had three things in common: an active profile on Periscope, a passion for black owned business, and a heart for community.

Periscope is a live streaming app that is designed for users to share the world through their viewpoint in real time on video. On one of Pamela’s scopes in 2015, a viewer asked what she was wearing. As she described her clothes and jewelry, she realized everything she had on was purchased from a black business. She thought aloud how wonderful it would be if there was a place to regularly showcase other black business owners in a similar manner. Adeea and Christine were watching, thought it was a great idea, and offered to help give the idea wings.

The very next day, BlackBizScope went from an idea to an established broadcast that takes place on Periscope every Friday, from 10 – 11AM and 6 – 8PM EST. Each weekly broadcast is hosted by one of the founders, and business owners are given 15 minutes to market and promote their products and services to a highly engaged audience.

The mission of BlackBizScope is to leverage the power of social media to recycle dollars within the black community with intentional and strategic spending. This makes it an ideal hub for black business owners to network, gain invisibility, and increase awareness around their products and services in the digital space.

With over 4 million hearts (of engagement) and over 17,000 followers to date, what it has turned out to be is a full-on movement and nothing short of a virtual phenomenon. Media outlets such as Black Enterprise, The Huffington Post, Madame Noire, and Atlanta Black Star have taken notice and run features on BlackBizScope, giving it the recognition it deserves. The founders take pride in their work in creating this thriving, supportive, and economically empowered community of black business owners.
