Inglewood’s small business hub, home to four black-owned businesses

Business incubator EG Wood opened its first small business hub on Chicago’s South Side, housing four black-owned businesses.

On Thursday, the organization held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at its new property at 1122 West 63rd Street in Inglewood, where Powell’s Barbershop, consignment retailer Marie | Wesley, Momentum Coffee, and design firm Beehive will be gone.

“EG Woode has helped make my dream a reality. “Now that I have a retail space to call home, I am working hard to see my business really grow.”

EG Woode is an organization founded in 2017 that provides business development, real estate and marketing strategy to black business owners.

The opening of the EG Wood space is part of Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s INVEST South/West initiative, which aims to develop Chicago’s south and west sides by supporting small businesses and other community development projects. .

Deon Lucas, architect and partner at EG Wood, said:
