Deante’ wants to give back to the women in his community by giving them the opportunity to successfully launch their own businesses.
“My girl is a nurse working two jobs and still trying to find purpose — that’s a true story. I just want to help women like her, like my mother, like my friends, to have the support and resources to develop their projects and ideas.
There are so many resources out there, and Black women are the last to receive them, so I wanted to do something to tip the scales in their favor. So, whatever that dream or purpose is, let’s put it on paper and get support on how to make the most out of it.”Deante’ Hitchcock
