The ShopKatika app is a global diaspora platform in the US and South Africa with a goal of circulating the black dollar by way of a marketplace and directory for black-owned businesses and products. The app provides a landmap of black owned organizations, making it easy for you to find and support these businesses. The Founder of Shop Katika, Jason Cole, stopped by the show to chat with Helanah about the many ways the public can be supporting black businesses right now! He also shared the story behind building Shop Katika and what the company’s vision for the future is.
You can download the app, “Shop Katika: Black Businesses” in the Apple and Google Play App store. Learn more at Shopkatika.com or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
