Meet Sabrina The Founder Of The First Ever Black Woman-Owned Investing Mobile App

Meet the founder of the first Black-owned and Black woman-led trading and investing mobile app know as ‘Wekeza’ meaning “invest” in Swahili. Her name is Sabrina Lamb, a former standup comedian, and best-selling author of the NAACP Image Awards nominated Do I Look Like An ATM?. She has also co-hosted radio programs on three popular New York City radio stations. She was a radio correspondent during three Democratic National Conventions and presidential inaugurations. A former actor and stand-up comedian, Sabrina performed at national comedy clubs and starred in Lifetime Television’s Girls’ Night Out and NBC’s Saturday Night Live. She is a three-time finisher of the New York City Marathon.

The determined female CEO, with the help of the team members of the company is prepared to close the widening wealth gap in the Black community by democratizing access to trading and investor education – with zero trading fees. In that way members or users of the app can purchase fractional, and whole shares of U.S. publicly traded companies.

Giving her comment on this app, Sabrina said;

 “We are excited that with Wekeza, everyone can own fractional or whole shares of any company we support as consumers. Let’s become consumers and educated investors! And receive guidance from licensed, experienced financial advisors.”

“It is no laughing matter to ignore the power of saving and investing, which are opportunities to earn returns over time. Parents can also create Wekeza custodial accounts for their children.” – She added this statement because, Sabrina knows that financial insecurity is no joke in the Black community.

Talking about what speed her inspiration to birth this investment app, Sabrina said that it her 17-year-old non-profit WorldofMoney helped to inspire the creation of Wekeza.

However, for those of you who are contemplating on what WorldofMoney is about, I will through more light on that. WorldofMoney is the leading provider of immersive online and classroom financial and education for ages 7 – 21 in the United States, Senegal, Ghana, Kenya, and South Africa.

Sabrina in her words, said;

“Leveraging decades of WorldofMoney’s financial education experience empowering over 7,000 youth with 120 hours of holistic financial education, we created Wekeza so adults also can receive investor education, create financial security, and build generational wealth for themselves and their families. Imagine the day when we no longer experience financial roller coasters in our lives!”
