Not only did BLACK ENTERPRISE select Harpo Inc. as the 2008 Industrial/Service Company of the Year but it was the first time that billionaire entrepreneur Oprah Winfrey spoke to the press in detail about her business empire. At the time, the dynamo was still developing Oprah Winfrey Network or OWN, asserting that  divine inspiration, not strategic planning, drove her company’s success. She also admitted that it took a solid business team and sound financial controls to grow her entity from a five-person production company to a 430-employee multimedia conglomerate. Moreover, she owns every piece of her franchise: the content, name, brand and studio.

CAMAC Holdings Inc. was the second black-owned enterprise to gain membership into the BE 100s billion dollar club when it reached the No. 1 slot on our 2003 INDUSTRIAL/SERVICE 100. In fact, the Houston-based oil and gas exploration, consulting and engineering company was only a hair away from achieving the milestone when it made its debut on our industrial/service list in 2002 - - gross sales for 2001 were $979.5 million. Operated by Nigerian-born Kase Lawal, CAMAC (which stands for Cameroon-American) grew through its ability to integrate upstream services, the production of oil and gas, and downstream operations, which included trading and refining of its products. CAMAC, which reported its highest level of revenues-- $2.43 billion-- on the 2009 list, left the BE 100s in  2011 after shifts in operational structure, management and ownership.

In the tech industry, less than 1% of founders who have received venture capital funds are African American. Black women compose only a fraction of that 1%. But, you would never guess that walking into Ogilvy & Mather World headquarters in New York City for day one of the FOCUS100 Symposium and Pitch Bootcamp. 

The one thing many of these women had in common was the passion and drive to create their own dream, and become employers in today’s high-growth innovation economy. Founded by Kathryn Finney, the FOCUS 100 symposium was designed to not only connect black female thought leaders and tech innovators, but arm them with the skills needed to make an impression on the mostly white, male-dominated world of tech startups.
