How Wakuda works

Wakuda brings together sellers who enjoy what they do with buyers who appreciate quality products from independent businesses.

It helps businesses who may have faced challenges in terms of growing their business and gives them a much-needed boost by giving buyers who want to support the black community the opportunity to do so.

It’s a space where black-owned businesses can thrive and make an impact.

Wakuda gives their sellers the tools and knowledge necessary to build successful small businesses and provides support to them to ensure they consistently deliver the best service to their customers.

They also keep their fees low to give sellers the best opportunity to grow and allow buyers to access affordable products.

Meet the founders

Wakuda was founded in 2020 by friends, serial entrepreneurs and investors Albert Larter and Nathaniel Wade.

The aim of it was to help encourage the black community and to support independent black business owners.

Albert, who came up with the concept of Wakuda, has a strong background in marketing, while Nathaniel brings his financial savvy.

Together, they have found a way to give back to their community and empower other black entrepreneurs to become successful business owners.
