In the corporate world, wearing a suit and tie, or a dress with heels, is the norm. However, techies and entrepreneurs tend to have their own style, preferring to switch things up a bit. A male geek will likely wear a blazer and some sort of graphic tee with jeans. A female techie may add color to her outfit with a pair of trendy earrings. At Black Enterprise we love how CyberSynchs founder, Amos Winbush III (pictured here), keeps his wardrobe business casual with a hint of geek flare.

Middle-class African Americans are more likely than whites to have cut back on saving and investing in order to make it through the recession, according to the 2010 Ariel Black Investor Survey. The data is not unexpected since the unemployment rate for African Americans (15.4%) continues to track higher than the overall jobless rate for all Americans (9.5%). “In times of economic hardship, people have to make difficult decisions,” said Mellody Hobson, Ariel president and columnist for Black Enterprise magazine. “Unfortunately, the resulting trade-offs mean many in our community are slipping even further behind.”
