The U.S. Small Business Administration’s My Brother’s Keeper Initiative today unveiled the full line-up of the six successful millennial entrepreneurs featured in a new video series hosted by Mike Muse, the SBA MBK Millennial Entrepreneur Champion.
The six-part video series, titled “Biz My Way,” encourages millennials to follow their passion in business and highlights millennial entrepreneurs from different professions ranging from technology to fashion and music.
The series features digital innovator Reggie Miller, technology investor Jason Mowatt, celebrity trainer Ehinomen “Hollywood Hino” Ehikhamenor, Being Latino founder Lance Rios, Chef Maxcel Hardyand Beyoncé’s stylist and designer Ty Hunter, who launched the series in November.
My Brother’s Keeper is President’s Obama’s initiative to empower young people, particularly young men of color, to improve their life outcomes and overcome barriers to success. The MBK Millennial Entrepreneurs Champion initiative formally began in June 2015, when SBA Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet charged Mike Muse with establishing partnerships and joint collaborations with American companies that would elevate awareness around entrepreneurship. Additionally, he was tasked with developing programming to unite millennials with industry experts in an effort to help shift various lifestyle categories of business in a more inclusive direction.
Shot documentary style, each entrepreneur reveals their paths to entrepreneurship. In the first video, Ty Hunter revealed his transition from working in the healthcare industry to fashion. Hunter speaks candidly about his personal brand, his successes, his fears and his work with Beyoncé.
