BIZTALK: How Genesis Block Aims To Help Businesses Grow

By Cece Nunn, posted Aug 12, 2020

Genesis Block is an initiative set up to include coworking and incubator space where people working on tech startups and small businesses can come together in a creative environment to collaborate.

The founders of Genesis Block are entrepreneurial couple Tracey and Girard Newkirk.

The initiative, which is expected to be located in downtown Wilmington, has also established a partnership with Wilmington-based startup incubator tekMountain, which has invested $50,000, to develop a technology platform promoting Black entrepreneurs and small businesses.

On Wednesday's BizTalk, the Newkirks discussed Genesis Block and their efforts to build a business class in Wilmington block by block.

They also talked about the new platform, dubbed Anza, which is planned to help identify Black-owned businesses regionally, provide resources and tools for entrepreneurs and provide index information for companies and organizations that want to collaborate with Black-owned businesses.

Watch the whole conversation below.
