Mandy Bowman

Founder of Official Black Wall Street

Biography

Mandy Bowman is the Founder and CEO of Official Black Wall Street, the largest app and digital platform helping consumers find, review, and patronize Black-owned businesses. After studying Entrepreneurship and Global Business Management at Babson College, she set out to empower the Black community through economics and ownership.

The Brooklyn native felt called to launch the Official Black Wall Street platform in 2015, and the app in 2017, after witnessing the many challenges Black-owned businesses endured in her hometown of Brooklyn, New York, from lack of funding to being priced out due to gentrification. Since then, Mandy has been at the forefront of the #BuyBlack movement, helping Black businesses around the world gain the exposure and resources they deserve. In 2017 Mandy was invited to TEDx Dover, the first TED event held at an HBCU, to give a talk on ownership and long-term wealth in the Black community. In 2019, she made her return to the TEDx stage at TED x Babson.
