It Was All A Dream...


Our Story.

Millennial Ventures Holdings is the parent company to a suite of innovative social impact brands. Powered by a team of scrappy entrepreneurs, we launched with no funding and have boot-strapped our way to success since opening our doors.

With less than 1% of black-owned and women-founded startups receiving VC funding, our founder decided that we'd never "wait" for investments to launch our grand ideas. 

Some ideas have failed, others have succeeded, and we're thankful that (without a doubt) this approach has paid off! We're humbled to still be in business, and are grateful for all of the people who have supported our vision since day one.

Our Founder.

Dr. Brandi M. Baldwin is a psychology and business professor turned entrepreneur who is a startup founder and thought leader tackling the world's most relevant business challenges: diversity and inclusion, motivating millennials to level-up their leadership, and advocating for equity in all levels of business. As the CEO of Millennial Ventures Holdings and a former Wharton Lecturer, Dr. Brandi also hosts the "Diversity and Confusion" podcast and "Leader-ish" podcast. 

Dr. Brandi is a published author and speaks at over 40 conferences and companies annually. She is tapped by companies such as Comcast, Discover, and the Federal Government to share her unconventional insights on leadership, diversity and inclusion, and business. Her noteworthy accomplishments include being appointed to Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney's Millennial Advisory Commission, being named one of Philadelphia's Most Influential African Americans, receiving Philadelphia Business Journal's 40 Under 40 award, the Diversity and Inclusion Outstanding Ally honor from the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the "Take the Lead" award from the Girl Scouts. 

Dr. Brandi is the author of "Put in Work: Gain Respect, Influence Others, and Get Results as a New Leader", and “Authentic Ally: Ditch the Guilt, Stop Performing, and Take Purposeful Action as an Ally for Racial Equity”. Although her worldly accomplishments seem noteworthy, she believes that her Christian faith helps her remain grounded. Dr. Brandi believes she was put on this earth to impact, not impress.
