Experts in accelerating change for business
Who we are
Angie Hancock & Associates channels the insights developed from working with over 1,100 small businesses, corporations, and nonprofits into solutions designed to help Black- and/or women-owned businesses succeed. Our mission is to inspire, empower and elevate historically underrepresented entrepreneurs develop technical skills, access resources, and market their businesses to meet the needs of communities. We cultivate educational and wealth-building support structures and growth opportunities that have been hindered due to systemic racism, helping business owners bolster capacity, broaden networks, and align business processes for long-term success. Our ultimate goal is community development: by working with organizations that support marginalized communities, we help strengthen, unify, and gain attention for those communities. We work together with individuals, families, organizations, and institutions for the progress of the ecosystem – the community.
