See Why Mortgage Pro Timothy Griggs Created The New App To Help You Manage Your Credit

BLACK-OWNED CREDIT CARD APP LAUNCHED TO HELP YOU IMPROVE AND MANAGE YOUR CREDIT SCORE

Timothy Griggs with 30+ years of experience in the mortgage industry has designed and launched an app called The Good Steward Financial System to help users manage their credit cards all in one place. Instead of having to login into multiple apps and websites to decide which credit card is best to use for a transaction, this mobile app consolidates all of the important information into one interface.

This app launch is just in time because many credit card companies are having a hard time managing the influx of traffic to their call centers and their mobile apps. This mobile app connects you directly with the backend of your credit card processing companies through an API and avoids the slow information acquisition that plagues the credit card apps daily.

By the year 2023, revolving credit card debt will expand by another $100 billion from $1.08 trillion. Now is the time to monitor and be strategic about your revolving credit, and this mobile credit card app will help you do just that.

HBCU Grad Launches $10.7M Venture Capital Firm

ENTREPRENEUR LAUNCHES $10.7M VENTURE CAPITAL AND PRIVATE EQUITY FIRM CALLED HBCU SEED

Nationwide -- While attending Oakwood University as a business major, Terrel Davis became a serial student entrepreneur who recognized three significant problems that HBCU students faced: lack of resources, services, and funding. As such, he decided to establish HBCU Seed, a venture capital and private equity firm that solely invests in businesses owned by HBCU students, alumni, faculty, and staff.

As an HBCU student, Davis witnessed firsthand the socioeconomic difficulties that student entrepreneurs had to face. HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) generally only receive minimal financial support and amenities. That in turn leaves less money for them to support student entrepreneurs.

Experts say that the future of HBCUs is bleak since state legislatures and the federal government have reduced their funding in favor of financing institutions with larger endowments. When Davis established his own business, he was met with the same problems.
