Educate. Collaborate. Take Action.

Join BUILD’s Giving Tuesday Virtual Event on


Tuesday, December 1st, 2020

12:30 pm – 1:30 pm ET

This Giving Tuesday, please join BUILD NYC and our student entrepreneurs for a fireside chat with Lisa Price, the Founder of Carol’s Daughter and Erica Culpepper, BUILD board member and L’Oreal’s General Manager, Multi-cultural Beauty.

Lisa will discuss how she launched her iconic hair, body, and skin care company from her Brooklyn kitchen in 1993 and grew it to become a beauty empire sold to L’Oreal in 2014.  This promises to be an important conversation about Lisa’s challenges and triumphs as a Black female entrepreneur who built a paradigm-changing business.

She is an inspiration to the next generation of Black women and female entrepreneurs as they find their power, passion, and purpose.




Through entrepreneurship-based, experiential learning, BUILD ignites the potential of youth from under-resourced communities and equips them for high school, college and career success. By helping students develop and run their own small business, BUILD supplements traditional school with critical skill-building for the future.

BUILD’s Women Bridging Communities Speaker Series

This series brings together a diverse community of thought leaders and changemakers to discuss how we can empower the next generation of Latinx and Black women to successfully navigate spaces of power and privilege.
