The idea of SMAART happened organically. Growing from a desperate need for black entrepreneurs to be taken more seriously; and be granted access to resources that would help scale our businesses and communities. Within the NAACP economic committee, a call was sounded for young and hungry black professionals to step up and lead. These five men answered the call.
