Sean “Diddy” Combs has launched Empower Global, a one-stop shop for Black-owned fashion, art, and beauty businesses. The platform, designed and constructed by Black-owned development company TechSparq and powered by Black-owned tech company ChatDesk, aims to recreate a modern version of Black Wall Street, a thriving Black neighborhood in Tulsa, Oklahoma, that was destroyed in 1921. Empower Global provides business owners with support in growing their operations, accessing finance, obtaining data and analytics, and delivering orders. Combs serves as the platform’s official spokesman and promotes it through media interviews. The platform currently features 70 companies and plans to expand to more than 200 businesses by the end of the year.
