Akron woman launches biz mag for black female entrepreneurs
Da’Shika Wells of Akron, Ohio, has launched a business magazine aimed at black female entrepreneurs, writes Judy Stringer of Crain’s Chicago Business.
Stringer writes, “Late last month, Wells published the first issue of Official B.A.B.E Magazine. B.A.B.E stands for Black and Brilliant Entrepreneur. The quarterly publication, exclusively digital for now, features articles and advice from a collection of 14 contributors across the country.
