What started out as a personal investment, turned into Tiffany James investing her time into a whole community through her company, Modern Blk Girl (MBG).
After her $10,000 dollar Tesla investment grew past $2 million in 2020, James earned her wings, and began to teach others to fly shortly after. Fashioned to give black women access to the stock market and lessons on trading, Modern Blk Girl has gained over 400,000 members, mainly women of color, who hope to one day follow in James’ footsteps.
On November 20, James, alongside skincare brand Topicals, spirit curator Rémy Martin and more, celebrated three years of MBG with We Rise: A Toast to Women and Financial Literacy.
Held at the exclusive 2045 Studio in NYC, the celebration introduced guests to products from Topicals stashed in the ladies room, mani/pedis from Laqlab, 20 different scents courtesy of Mind Games Fragrance and the honoree of the evening; Ms. James.
Hailing from Brooklyn with Caribbean roots, James opened up about her journey during a Q&A. In short, the support from her community and interest in finance fueled MBG. “Knowing how Black women supported me, I had to pour back into them,” James noted.
As for the future, James plans on opening an AI based restaurant in Los Angeles. Be sure to keep up with the CEO and get in on the financial fun @modernblkgirl and/or @tiffanyj.
