The Vivian’s Door Initiative

is a desktop/smartphone platform that connects minority business owners to an entrepreneurial ecosystem of opportunities and resources.

Inspired by the legacy of Vivian Malone Jones, the first African-American to graduate from the University of Alabama in 1965, the app serves as a gateway for entrepreneurs to cultivate relationships with their local community, government, and diversity officials, source mentors and investors, and achieve greater levels of success.

"The path to diversity begins with supporting, mentoring, and sponsoring diverse women and men to become leaders and entrepreneurs."

- Denise Morrison

First Female CEO, Campbell's Soup
