The People
Shall Thrive

The People’s Fund is a crowd funding platform for small black owned businesses with a certain edge. They’re the one in a million. The 1%. Our primary objective is to use the buying power of the masses to build the economy one business at a time.
A determined collaboration between Brownsense, The HookUp Dinner & Paybook; The People’s Fund is a platform that allows people who want to play a key role in the economy to have a measurable impact.

We are merely the conduit for a people led economy

‘The People’ stands for people built economies, people driven economies & people driven growth. So the people shall rule. We want people to have a meaningful & measurable impact on the economy they would like to see.

The passion & ingenuity of amazing entrepreneurs we have crossed paths with is why we are here. Their fire and ability is the reason we are here. We let them drive change through you. Our experience ensures that everyone wins

In fact, we would love to see Africans returning to Africa by giving them a landing pad for building their own startups; they can also help boost the local startup talent pool.”
