homegrown humanitarians.

We are a group of HBCU grads on a mission to fuse technology
with culture for the advancement of Black Lives.

One conversation on a summer evening started it all.

From that conversation, we realized three things…

Lack of Connectedness

Lack of Connectedness

Too often we operate in silos which makes it impossible for us to take advantage of capital pooling and collective resource accumulation.

Lack of Trust

Lack of Trust

Business is based upon trust, and the general lack of trust among Black people keeps us from doing business with each other, serving to stifle collective growth.

Lack of Organization

Lack of Organization

Spending power in the Black community is abundant so why can’t we seem to fund businesses and provide personal loans? Because the capital is unorganized.

Get To Know The Founders

Our physical bond was forged seven years ago on the campus of Morehouse College, but our spiritual bond goes back to the hoods that raised us – Chicago, Cleveland, and Brooklyn. We started BREAUX Capital with a $500 dollar investment and we will stop nothing short of shifting the culture of financial health for Black millennials across the globe.
