Higher Purpose Co. returns with 8th Annual Money Purpose Success (MPS) Women’s Entrepreneurship Summit

On the heels of Black Business Month, I’d love for you to meet Dr. Tim Lampkin, Founder of Higher Purpose Co & the 8th Annual Money Purpose Success(MPS) Summit. MPS celebrates entrepreneurship and black women founders with one common yet incredibly necessary goal, to provide black women with the tools and resources they need to launch or elevate their businesses, their self-care, and essentially their communities to the next level!

Despite the impacts of COVID-19, from 2017 to 2020, the number of employer businesses owned by Black women rose to 52,374—encompassing 37.2% of all Black-owned businesses and representing an increase of 1.41 percentage points. Dr. Lampkin has made it his mission to not only champion black women but celebrate black businesses with fundraising efforts that foster Solutions-based organizing and community wealth building to amplify our theory of change to aggressively tackle generational poverty, structured inequality, and institutionalized racism in the state of Mississippi and beyond with a current goal of raising $700,000 to support black business.

MPS brings reincarnates black wall street through community support, innovation, and creating the tools many need to succeed.
