Watch: Ra’Cole Taltoan on Supporting Entrepreneurs of Color

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Beyond the effect that individuals can have on minority-owned businesses, Ra’Cole Taltoan, owner of Rockbrook Business Services says she’s often frustrated with the lack of support from larger institutions like local governments and business organizations.

“I think we put too much focus on bringing in bigger companies who aren’t guaranteed to be here for the next 10, 15, 20 years,” she says.

To help minority entrepreneurs get started, Taltoan works with them to repair their credit, get their finances in shape and direct them toward other organizations that can provide help to get their companies off the ground.
