Fewer than 1% of women of color entrepreneurs reach $1M in annual revenue—and UpMobility grantee Million Dollar Women Fund is looking to change that. Led by noted entrepreneur Julia Pimsleur, Million Dollar Women Fund has helped many women of color entrepreneurs gain access to business training, powerful networks, mentors as well as capital needed to scale up their businesses.
One of the women chosen for the program is Aliya Thomas, a personal stylist and wardrobe consultant who is is the founder of Elevated Style by Aliya in New York City. With what she learned through the Million Dollar Women’s Fund’s master class approach, Ms. Thomas was able to outsource her newsletter and marketing and communications, giving her time to offer additional products and services in her business. Supporting entrepreneurship is one of the cornerstones of UpMobility Foundation and we hope to continue to support organizations like Million Dollar Women Fund long into the future.
