About the Trailblazers Fellowship

The Gathering Spot (TGS) partnered with SheaMoisture Men to establish the Trailblazers: A Small Business Fellowship Program. TGS and SheaMoisture Men built a scalable fellowship that launched in Atlanta to serve an often neglected group — Black male entrepreneurs. The Gathering Spot and SheaMoisture Men identified twenty Black, male identifying small business owners to represent the first cohort.

Through dedicated programming and intentional connections over a 6-month Fellowship, business owners are gaining important knowledge and meeting the right people to catapult their company to the next level. Our partnership with TGS is a part of an emerging multi-year commitment to identify one hundred Black male identifying entrepreneurs.
