“During these unprecedented times we feel that our mission is – more than ever – to connect cities with small businesses, residents and communities. As a child growing up in a neighborhood where I did not feel safe nor empowered, I deeply understand the importance of having access to opportunities and equality. This is why today we want to offer cities a platform that promotes inclusivity and diversity, and why we are focused on supporting black-owned businesses” – Amos Meriri, Colu’s CEO
Here at Colu, we’re committed to creating inclusive communities where people of all backgrounds feel connected and empowered. Since our beginning in 2014, we have been conscious of the systemic issues that inhibit Black entrepreneurs and are constantly working to create equal opportunities, as well as bettering ourselves as a company, as employees, and, ultimately, as a member of society.
On our platform, we have always been committed to supporting black-owned and minority-owned businesses, but we acknowledge that there is still a long way to go.
These are the action items we are committing to in order to contribute to positive change:
We are continually educating ourselves about these issues and understand the importance of supporting Black communities around the world.
