Braids Hair is among the millions of entrepreneurs who survived the pandemic and recession last year to lead an overflow in business innovation. This wave was especially enunciated in Black communities. Some 4.4 million new companies were established across the country in 2020, up 24 percent from 2019, as reported to Census Bureau. The National Bureau of Economic Research examined business enrollments in eight states, including Texas, and discovered that in 2020 primarily Black residents had a leap in signups from the prior year.
"The pattern was repeated in Houston, where predominantly Black neighborhoods led the region in the creation of new businesses, according to researchers at Rice University, who analyzed business registrations by zip code. New business registrations more than tripled in 2020 in the 77016 zip code in the East Little York / Homestead area and nearly tripled in the South Park zip code 77033. This compares to a 51 percent increase in the region. The neighborhoods are 63 percent and 65 percent Black, respectively." - reported by the Houston Chronicle
