Description of Ebony 100 Directory and Events www.ebony100.com

Ebony 100 Directory is a niche B2B and B2C online digital directory website and event service business primarily for Black businesses and businesses of color.  Our name is a metaphor that represents the level, practice and purpose all businesses in our directory look to achieve in their everyday practice and offerings and in their service to the consumers they serve.

Ebony 100 is about keeping our Black and Brown businesses reaching for 100% in quality, service, advertising, marketing, and exposure.  Collaborating, leveraging and positioning Black businesses to achieve fulfilling consumer engagement and product service demand. We guarantee our directory will open the door for more opportunities for Black business members and not just talk.  We are the “do directory” and we are Ebony 100%.

This directory is positioned to take Black businesses into the technological future. Helping to solve the problems associated with consumer needs, the digital divide, employment in our communities, lost business opportunities and ways to sustainability for our businesses is our passion. Problems that affect the bottom line for Black businesses today must be solved together as collaborative partners and supporters of the need for each business.
