Although Madame C.J. Walker became America’s first black self-made millionaire in 1911, the racial wealth gap that exists among society’s ultra-successful and wealthy remains vast. To date, there are only seven black women on Forbes’ annual list of rich self-made women, even though black women are reportedly among the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs in the U.S. Our goal is to empower more black women to achieve self-made status.

BAUCE is a media platform for aspiring self-made women. We share resourceful and motivational content to help black women unapologetically transition from poverty to prosperity. A BAUCE woman embodies the hustler’s spirit, is focused on wealth building, and continuously works towards her dreams — she never takes no for an answer. 

The BAUCE Manifesto: 
Whether you were born in a trailer or grew up in the hood,
had poor grades in school or were just misunderstood,
you have the ability to make it to the top.
Yes, girl, you TOO can make the world stop!
For success is not defined by the history of your past,
the color of your skin or being raised middle class —
But rather by how hard you are willing to work
to be the best you can be and to put your dreams first.
