A Day in the Life of Sundial Brands Co-Founder
Richelieu Dennis co-founded Sundial Brands as small venture selling homemade soap on Harlem street corners. Dennis told the WSJ, “This was never about building a business. This was about taking care of and investing back in our community.” In 2017, Dennis created the New Voices Fund.
Through New Voices, Sundial Brands awarded $25,000 each to entrepreneurs Kimberly Wilson and Stevonne Ratliff. Congratulations!
Helping build the next billion dollar company
in February, Richelieu Dennis shared that he expected New Voices to make its first investments in the summer of 2018.
