Local Black-Owned Businesses To Support in Austin, Texas

Updated: May 25, 2022

Let’s do this, Austin!

As part of our initiative to show our solidarity with the Black Lives Matter Movement we’ve compiled a list of local, black-owned businesses in Austin to support. Supporting small businesses and minority-owned business owners and founders was the reason Glass Staircase was created. If you plan to shop — we encourage you to shop with intention.

As a small business, we may not have the financial resources to donate, but we are contributing what we can: our time and resources. Everyone has something to give.

Aside from your patronage to local businesses, there are multiple ways you can support the movement. From simply keeping the conversation alive, to educating yourself on race related issues, to political activism, to monetary donations, to donating time — everyone can contribute something regardless of their circumstances. You can even get creative by streaming monetized Youtube videos that support racial justice!

As a woman-owned business, we are committed to serving women in their journey of entrepreneurship and breaking down the barriers to their success. These barriers affect women of color even more so, and we believe the glass ceiling won't be truly broken until it's broken by ALL women. The Black Lives Matter Movement deserves our time and attention — and we should all do our part as citizens of this community to support our neighbors and keep Austin diverse and weird.

The Glass Staircase team is donating a brand photoshoot to a black-owned business in July, and you can nominate businesses here!
