Black Ambition is a non-profit initiative founded by Pharrell Williams, a visionary recording artist, philanthropist, and entrepreneur, working to close the opportunity and wealth gap for Black and Latinx communities through entrepreneurship. During the inaugural Black Ambition prize competition in 2021, Black Ambition provided more than $3M to 34 founders who have since gone on to raise more than $50M in the past year.
Billionaire Boys Club, founded by Pharrell Williams and Nigo in 2003, is a globally recognized clothing, accessories and lifestyle brand, whose blend of streetwear and luxury has influenced countless pockets of fashion, music, design and culture. As the brand has morphed to continuously lead and define fashion, we have built a universe from the foundation of Billionaire Boys Club to form ICECREAM, Bee Line and Billionaire Girls Club.
