The Business Mastery Institute began in 1997-2009 with Dr Donnetta Watson teaching “Write the Vision” classes throughout Kansas City. In 2015, she began The Black MasterMind Group Charitable Foundation a 501c3 organization to provide assistance in the development of healthier, stronger Black Entrepreneurial Communities across the Nation. She soon realized what was missing for Black Entrepreneurs, an understanding of financial side of business i.e., Entrepreneurial Financial Literacy. She set out to address the core issue that prohibits black entrepreneurs from accessing capital and in 2019 developed The Business Mastery Institute. In 2020 she began offering the BootCamp Classes across the nation virtually during COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2021 she opened the Entrepreneurial Resource and Training Center in Kansas City Kansa to provide incubator offices, 2 training rooms, and resources and assistance to nurture the development of stronger Black Entrepreneurs.
