Connecting everyone to black owned businesses

Katika is a global marketplace and directory for black-owned businesses. By making it easy to find products, services and events from historically marginalized communities, Katika is focused on increasing the visibility and accessibility of these businesses. Ultimately, we want to increase the circulation of much needed dollars within these local communities, across the entire African-Diaspora.
