Episode 1 - The Mindset: Genius Black and Gimbala Sankare discuss the mindset needed to be a successful entrepreneur. They talk about Fintech, and the need to demystify financial planning, the current status of the American Dream, and explore a problem-solving mental 'circuit jump'. And we learn about Gimbala's beginnings in Ghana, and how that translated to the Bronx, USA! Gain perspective, inspiration, and knowledge about an effective mindset. (Since this recording, Gimbala has accepted a position as Head of Talent Acquisition for the National Basketball Association {NBA} )

One Maine Group is a strategic partnership developed by Black Owned Maine (“BOM”) and Providentia Group (“Providentia”) to cultivate BIPOC economic agency and power that has been dampened by historical inequities and systemic disparities. One Maine is launching 2021 programming to determine what works to nurture and sustain the entrepreneurial aspirations for BIPOC Mainers.
