Black Women Invest

Black Women Invest is a vibrant community and a powerful movement. We're a national network of over 14,000 Black Women across the U.S., united by a shared mission: helping one million Black Women become stronger investors and build brighter futures for themselves and their families. We believe that every woman deserves the chance to thrive financially. That's why we offer a wealth of resources and support to empower our members.

CEO & Founder

Schelo D. Collier

Schelo carries a background in finance and real estate investing. After years of witnessing the underrepresentation of Black women in the investment space, she knew it was time to scrap the idea of finding a seat at the table – it was time for Black Women to build our own table!  

Black Women carry a unique financial story.

By centering the voices and experiences of Black women, we can build a more financially equitable future for all.

Prior to starting BWI, Schelo built her career in the real estate investment space, where in a former role, she traveled across the country helping thousands of investors build their real estate portfolios. Schelo also snatched her first investment property at the age of 24 and has since helped hundreds of members in BWI learn how to invest in real estate and stocks, in order to build a diversified portfolio.
