Meet The Team
Inspired by our 2015 trip to the Motown Museum in Detroit, MI, we learned how Berry Gordy’s parents worked together to create a self sustaining investment fund that provided business startup capital for all of their children and family members. It was this investment fund that provided the funding necessary for Berry Gordy to launch his Motown record label.
For us this was a divine moment of inspiration, as high school and college friends, we had always discussed different ways we could impact our world in a meaningful way, how we could demonstrate to our communities that through hard work and collective responsibility, dreams are truly achievable. Now thanks to a trip to Motown, we had the blueprint, and thus the birth of BackPack Investments (BPi), an investment club....
Which brings us to today, after 3 years building and spending hundreds of hours in meetings and on conference calls, growing our investment fund, pooling our financial resources, and career experiences we are ready to launch our business, “Black Coffee.”
