TripActions Presents ‘Future Leaders’ Campaign for Black History Month

The TripActions Team

CultureReturn to blog

This February, TripActions is looking toward the future with a campaign featuring small Black-owned businesses that are reshaping entrepreneurship. Rather than focusing on history that’s already happened, our team is celebrating the businesses that are changing the future.

The campaign—sponsored by TripActions Liquid—will share the stories of three chosen business owners via blogs and Instagram Live posts with TripActions’ Head of DEI, Shaka Senghor. We’ll ask our community to vote for a winner, who will receive a credit of $5,000 to spend with the TripActions Liquid card and through the TripActions platform to build their enterprise.

Why Are We Doing This?

Although fintech has revolutionized payments, investing, and banking for consumers and enterprises, legacy financial companies and many new players have failed to address the challenges of SMBs.

TripActions Liquid is a corporate card and spend management solution that streamlines the entire business spending process, from payment to reconciliation—driving cost-savings, productivity, and compliance. And it’s now available for small- and medium-sized businesses.

Diversity holds enormous importance for TripActions—the company recently restructured its programs to cultivate more community and resources for our Employee Resource Groups. And to help honor Black History Month, we wanted to put our technology where our hearts are and offer real support to the Black-owned businesses that are changing the world today.

How to Get Involved

Help one small Black-owned business supercharge its work with a TripActions Liquid card:

  1. Start by learning about our three nominees this month on the TripActions blog, then tune in to our Instagram Live posts by following @TripActions and @ShakaSenghor on Instagram.
  2. Vote for your favorite nominee by visiting the TripActions Future Leaders poll between Friday, March 4, and Friday, March 11. The nominee with the most votes at the end of the voting period will win. Limit one vote per person.
  3. Check the blog and Instagram when we announce the winner on February 24!

We can’t wait to begin! Follow @TripActions on Instagram and search the hashtag #futureleaders to keep up on all of the action.
