By CultureBanx Team

  • Finance Savvy is making sure that small business owners have the tools necessary to support growth and generational wealth building
  • In 2064, the average white family will likely possess $2.7B in wealth while the average Black family wealth will be $789K

Entrepreneurship is a potent tool for wealth creation and achieving financial independence. Founder Marguerite Pressley Davis’s Finance Savvy CEO company is making sure that small business owners gain the ability to set their own salaries and reinvest profits back into the business, fueling growth. This control over income provides a pathway to financial freedom and the opportunity to create generational wealth, which is needed because in 2064, the average white family will likely possess $2,782,727 in wealth while the average Black family wealth will be $789,164, according to  a report by Elliott and Abacus Wealth Partners.

Why This Matters: The endeavor to build generational wealth among Black families has become a critical focus in the U.S., where numerous barriers to creating it persist. Moreover, the disparities are glaring in the case of business ownership, a potent source of generational wealth. Considering that in 2022, for every $1 of wealth held by a white family, a Black family had just $0.25, it’s evident that systemic change is needed. This is why Pressley Davis’s Finance Savvy CEO is uniquely positioned to fill the void for small business owners looking to get ahead financially.

Entrepreneurship goes beyond individual benefits. It plays a significant role in job creation and economic growth. As a business expands, it requires an increasingly larger workforce to support its operations. This not only creates job opportunities for individuals but also contributes to the overall economic growth of the ecosystem, much in the same way that the Black Innovation Alliance (BIA) does to support founders.

The core focus of our business is with a core focus on business financial and capital planning, access to capital, small business financial literacy, and investor and issuer education.

Pressley Davis has helped small business owners to raise $33M+ in capital and increase annual profits on average by 63%. Her mission to help entrepreneurs create a pathway to generational wealth, through profitable entrepreneurship and organic financial sustainability is why she created Finance Savvy CEO. 

CultureBanx: Are there any milestones you have achieved that you would  like to share?

Marguerite Pressley Davis: Innovation and sustainable growth can only happen if we are building ventures that are profitable and support wealth building. When we innovate we must ensure that our methods, processes, and overall business is financially healthy and sustainable .

Situational Awareness: Small businesses play a pivotal role in the economy. They contribute to economic growth by creating jobs, innovating products and services, and fueling local economies.
