They advocated for focusing on equity ownership in companies, like the social media platform Fanbase, as a strategy for building generational wealth. They highlighted how investments in tech startups could yield substantial returns, citing Fanbase’s growth from a $20 million to $160 million valuation. They stressed that understanding and investing in music publishing and tech equity can empower the black community by providing the means to raise capital and create lasting wealth.
