Here's What Our Members Have to Say

Walmart


"The life of an entrepreneur can indeed be very hard, but it is made easier when one has the support and help of a dynamic organization.  One of the best in offering access, support and guidance is the Black Directory!  The Black Directory provided information on applying to Walmart's Open Call last year.  Shoe Crazy Wine was given access to the Black Directory's expertise in our journey in preparing for the most important meeting for us.  The meeting was with Walmart buyers at the Walmart headquarters in Bentonville, AK.  We were ready and confident thanks to the support of Brian Morse with the Black Directory and our team's perseverance, tenacity, faith and family.  We were accepted on the spot to have our Shoe Crazy Wine on Walmart's shelves."   


~ Gwen Hurt, Shoe Crazy Wine

BP


BP reached out to Brian of the Black Directory with an opportunity to have a Black Directory member work on their (2) APC XR modules attached to their APC LX IPS.  Our team was able to perform the work needed with ease, and we look forward to being a preferred vendor for ongoing BP support needs.  



~ Shueyb Ali, World Services

Contracting Partnership


"After joining the Black Directory, Brian Morse connected me with another member out of Hilliard, OH.  We instantly connected and created a great partnership.  Both Haleema and I worked together and successfully completed a federal contract in the local area.  We have continued our relationship and we are currently looking for opportunities that works for us jointly."
