A-State Alum Runs Entrepreneurship Program For Black Women

Over-A-Cup offers Black women a safe space to discuss business future plans over a cup of coffee, teaching what has “not been taught.”

Shunqetta Cunningham, an alumna of Arkansas State University, is educating Black women on how to become entrepreneurs as the CEO of her program, Over-A-Cup.

Monthly gatherings with Over-A-Cup allow women to convene over coffee or tea to discuss future business plans. “My everyday job is to support nonprofit organizations and community leaders,” the nonprofit strategist said, according to KAIT. As a mother and college graduate, Cunningham supports women, nonprofit organizations, and community leaders through services such as grant writing, strategic planning, nonprofit development, and leadership training.

“I believe that nonprofit organizations are the second responders of our communities,” said Cunningham, whose dedication to assisting aspiring African American entrepreneurs stems from awareness of the systemic barriers and lack of information. She said Over-A-Cup gathers women to learn what has “not been taught.” She uses her role to “gather all the resources that these organizations need and put them on a path to success.”

Over-A-Cup has already graduated 12 Black women entrepreneurs.
