The BLOC is a cashback coalition loyalty program that rewards consumers for shopping with Black owned businesses. When customers register a debit or credit card on The BLOC web-based app and shop at Black owned businesses, they will automatically earn up to 10% cashback rewards that will then automatically go toward supporting Black led nonprofits. Our program is designed to help socially conscious consumers easily make contributions to Black led organizations.

We use card-linking designed by Bznga and supported by Fidel. The system features real time payment data from Visa, Mastercard and Amex, with sensitive data handled securely through PCI compliant SDK. With no complex POS integrations, staff training or customer coupons required, we offer a frictionless and personalized customer experience with real time notifications. All client data is safely and securely hosted using cloud technology, currently provided by Amazon Web Services.

Security is crucial when dealing with payment cards, which is why our system features a full PCI compliance and card tokenization. That means both merchants and consumers can rely on our card linking module to keep all transaction data safe and secure.

Our revenue model is commission-based where the merchants pays a slightly higher percentage than what the customer earns in cashback plus a small transaction fee.

Recommendations

I've followed and supported Black Business Boom for over a year now and I believe that one of the most telling signs of its success is how dynamic the offerings have become over the last 12 months.
Danielle always knew that she was creating something that was in-demand but the response that she's gotten from users, partners and community members show that the Black Business Boom app is just the tip of the iceberg.
During my time working at a State-backed VC firm in Tennessee, I had the privilege of writing a recommendation for Black Business Boom to our investment committee and that recommendation resulted in an investment. Now almost 12 months later, Danielle has done more with that small investment than many entrepreneurs have done with 10 times as much.
Ultimately, the success of Black Business Boom comes down to 2 factors, 1) the fact that Danielle cannot and will not be stopped and 2) the fact that the app and company address such a major pain point in such a comprehensive way.
