August is National Black Owned Business Month, which Amazon is using to shine the spotlight on resources available to Black-owned businesses as it relates to selling on Amazon. From the AboutAmazon.com article:
"National Black Owned Business Month is a time to recognize, celebrate, and support Black-owned businesses and entrepreneurs across the U.S. More than 60% of sales in Amazon’s store come from independent sellers—most of which are small and medium-sized businesses—and we aim to enable opportunities for Black-owned businesses, so they too can launch and build thriving businesses in our store and beyond.
In 2021, as part of our continued commitment to the success of Black-owned businesses, Amazon launched the Black Business Accelerator (BBA) to empower sustainable entrepreneurship for Black-owned businesses in our store. The increased diversity of products these Black-owned businesses provide in our store empowers customers to shop according to their values, while also enjoying a wide selection that reflects their unique preferences."
