Woman Formally on Welfare Quits 6-Figure Corporate Career to Help Black-Owned Businesses For Free


Meet Robin Rogers, the founder and CEO of 4BEBO, an online directory that makes finding and supporting Black-owned businesses easy and free. Robin, who grew up with seven siblings and a single mom on welfare, says that she quit her 6-figure job working for a Fortune 500 company for almost 20 years because she wanted to do all she could to help create and sustain more Black-owned businesses.

After quitting her job, she assembled a team of Black professionals from across the country and she immediately began building the platform. Robin comments, “The pandemic made me realize that my sister’s business that she’s been running for 7 years and my best friend’s business for 20 years both had the same obstacle; They needed to reach a broader audience.” This is what inspired Robin to use her corporate skills, training, and abilities to focus on helping her own community instead of a corporation’s bottom line. She continues, “God has blessed me to understand that the best rewards come from helping others without asking for anything in return.”

4BEBO, which is an abbreviation for “4 Black Entrepreneurs and Business Owners,” is available to download for free from the Google Play store and Apple’s iOS App Store.

Business owners can download the app and register their business for free, and shoppers are also encouraged to download the app to find and support Black-owned businesses both locally and nationwide.

4BEBO, which is based in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, is more than just another directory of Black-owned businesses. Via the brand’s social media pages and YouTube channel, entrepreneurs can also connect with each other for knowledge, support, and growth.
