Beyond slogans: A path forward for Houston’s Black business community

JeNae Johnson, founder of CTM Unlimited, a consulting company, is closing on an initial contract with GE worth more than $210,000 as a result of Share the Mic and the Money Now. She called the event “a case study for how you can make a lot of impact in a short period of time.”

“A lot of companies that I’ve seen, they’ve come out and said, ‘We really want to do something about the racial inequity we see, but we’re not sure where to start,’” Johnson said. “Waste Management, the Greater Houston Black Chamber, Leadership Houston — they set this up in four weeks.”
