OUR STORY

Brownpreneurs is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located in Saint Louis, Missouri.  The founder, Christal Rogers, started the organization to teach young African-Americans the principles of entrepreneurship.  She wanted to develop a program to instill in them, at an early age, the science of business ownership to increase their chances of success in the future.

WHAT DO WE DO

EMPOWER

We challenge students to shift their minds from thinking like an employee to thinking like an employer.
