Greenwood is a mobile banking platform that was inspired by the early 1900s Greenwood District, where recirculation of Black wealth occurred regularly and a place where Black businesses thrived. The creators of Greenwood Aim to tackle economic injustice.
The mobile financial institution exists to help the "unbanked get banked."
It’s no secret the current financial system has failed at keeping wealth in the Black and Latinx community. Our communities suffer from a lack of wealth, money circulation in the Black community, and generational transfer. That is why we created a new Black owned financial institution. A mobile banking platform inspired by the early 1900’s Greenwood District, where recirculation of Black wealth occurred all day, every day, and where Black businesses thrived. Today’s Greenwood is a Black owned banking system developed by us, for us. This is our time. Join us now.
During Wednesday's edition of #RMU, Roland spoke with Greenwood Co-founder Michael "Killer Mike" Render and Greenwood's Chief Compliance and Risk Officer Lynn Tillman-Cherry about the new banking platform and about how they intend to help our community take back control of our lives and our financial future.
