official 2021 Business Shower recap





Business Showers is a non-profit based in Charlotte, NC that was created during a worldwide pandemic, in response to the growing demand for businesses to launch as so many were closing. Freedom In Me took action to give back to our community in hopes of helping to build an economy even stronger than before.


Freedom In Me partners with our community to identify and host  Business Showers to start up businesses and non-profits. This non-profit in-kind, community giving program is designed to connect new businesses to people and resources. 

We collaborate with like-minded businesses across the United States who share in our mission to help us welcome, celebrate and shower new business owners with essentials to launch. Our idea clients are entrepreneurs who have recently launched and trying to grow/scale their businesses.


Some things that we gift these businesses include; but, are not limited to: Comprehensive Business Coaching, Marketing Support, website development, industry specific materials, logos, legal entity filing fees, ect. 

Our Mission- To increase the success rate for small business owners within their first 1-3 years of business, by combating the lack of training, resources, no business plan, or management team. 

Vision is simple:

Connecting new businesses to people and resources


It is our hope that by "gifting" rising entrepreneurs the skills and services needed for a solid foundation, we will build stronger and more financially sound communities.  Small businesses are successful far beyond three years in business because the community is coming together to create new opportunities for each other, and our families; and, are positive contributors to our society through business.


Business showers is only made possible through generous financial sponsors, grants when available and

business owners who offer their time and service.  Can you write grants? Create business plans? Build websites or design logos?   We are always looking for help  in these areas and more.   Additionally, we need financial sponsors..  Email us how you’d like to support. Or, click the donate now button to send your gift.  No amount is too small.
