Black Female Entrepreneurs: Zoom School Is In Session

This is the one zoom meeting that you don’t want to miss.


By now you are probably aware of those pointless Zoom meetings that could have definitely been handled via email; We can assure you that the following does NOT fit under that category. Virtual education is in fact all the rage at the moment and the beauty sphere is no exception. Founder of KNC Beauty Kristen Noel Crawley has announced that she is setting up a new online educational platform targeted to aid black female entrepreneurs within the beauty industry. “With the whole BLM thing and everything that’s going on I was looking to myself like, what can I do in my industry to make a difference?” She told WWD and boy, did she deliver.

Debuting on July 14, KNC Beauty School will offer four semesters of free education ranging from entrepreneurship and social media strategy to practicalities such as product packaging and labeling. Crawley, alongside black female executives Nancy Twine of Briogeo, Trinity Mouzon of Golde and Melissa Butler of The Lip Bar, is also aiming to give advice on facing adversity in the field as well as help fellow entrepreneurs avoid some mistakes she has made during her career. And if that wasn’t enough to get you signed up, the program will give out a $10,000 grant to one entrepreneur to either start their business or support an existing one. Get your notebook sis, zoom school is in session.
