Who We Are
Economic justice for Black, Latinx, and Indigenous communities
We believe education, home ownership, and entrepreneurship are the three pillars of closing the racial wealth gap in America - our focus is on entrepreneurship.
Community development through entrepreneurship
Majira means summer in Swahili. As a nod to the growing season, we cultivate healthy communities by enabling growth for startups and small businesses by providing access to consulting, coaching, connections, and capital for entrepreneurs from or serving Black, Latinx, and Indigenous communities.
OUR THEORY OF CHANGE
As startups and small businesses grow, they provide jobs and services for their communities and create wealth for their founders and their families.
Just as plants need sun, water, and good soil to grow, we believe startups and small businesses need consulting, coaching, connections, and capital to grow.

OUR COMPANIES, BY THE NUMBERS

PARTNER WITH EXPERTS
Our work is tailored to each company's specific business challenges and needs. Unlike one-size-fits-all, content-based programs, our world-class teams partner with each individual company to work together to tackle the strategic issues the business is facing.
We are deeply committed to black and brown communities and the entrepreneurs and individuals in them. All the effort and care we put into our work springs from our commitment to see underserved communities thrive.
Entrepreneurs and employees are more than their companies. We value every individual, from CEO to analyst, fully and wholly beyond just the work or business they bring.
We always start by listening to understand the unique background and nuances of a challenge and work to bring the necessary combination of expertise and resources to solve the problem. We recognize that there are no one-size-fits-all solutions, only opportunities to learn from those who have faced similar situations.
We value truth over flattery and will give tough love when needed. We believe honesty and integrity are essential to anything we do or say and the foundation of meaningful success.
Entrepreneurship can be a lonely and isolating experience, particularly for underrepresented founders. We strive to connect these founders both for mutual support and to multiply our individual networks and resources. We believe we all benefit when the entire ecosystem is stronger.
