The Suites

The Suites, founded by Shimite Obialo ’13LAW, is an exclusive business community for executives and entrepreneurs of color. 

The Suites invites senior-level executives and entrepreneurs of color who have at least five years of domain expertise and (i) are providing business support services such as attorneys, accountants, marketers, designers, developers, and consultants, or (ii) are in a position to hire those service providers, to apply for membership. 

“Every day I meet so many impressive men and women of color, and by getting to know them I am able to extend my network of relationships to help support their respective business initiatives. The truth is more people should know who they are,” says Obialo.
