The mission of Cocoapreneur is to foster an environment of economic prosperity in order to ensure more sustainable neighborhoods for the historically African American communities and neighborhoods around Pittsburgh, PA. Through support to businesses via advertising, marketing and consulting, Cocoapreneur aims to normalize the idea of entrepreneurship. We want to make becoming a business owner a more feasible and attainable goal for African Americans in the greater Pittsburgh area.

Khamil Scantling founded Cocoaprenuer Pgh, LLC in February 2018 but began this mission of circulating the Black dollar within Black communities well before that date. What began as the Black Dollars Matter campaign, started by Khamil and Nazura Asaseyeduru, has now evolved into what Cocoapreneur is today. This work is a labor of love and the goal is, and always will be, freedom!
