Who We Are

The Year of the Black Entrepreneur, led by Ryan Ray, CEO & Founder of Triangle Entrepreneurial Leadership, has a succinct vision: to Redefine Black Entrepreneurship by Educating, Elevating, and Highlighting Black Entrepreneurs. Our goal is to create a gateway for access to capital, resources & opportunities for Blacks in business in North Carolina and beyond.


We will:

  • Create unlimited learning and collaborative opportunities

  • Fuel our individual and collective worthy ambitions 

  • Push each other towards victory and then...

  • Celebrate our success


We provide our members with educational events, relationships by establishing networks and connections with opportunities that will allow you to grow and reach your potential as an entrepreneur.

Let us collaborate with you to bring your business dreams to reality.

Join the cause, the agenda… also known as the…Year of the Black Entrepreneur!
