Message from the Executive Chairman and Founder
I am very pleased to introduce WeShall Investments, one of Canada’s first private equity firms focused on BIPOC entrepreneurs and providing them with much-needed access to capital. WeShall will increase the number of BIPOC and women-led businesses across north America and the Caribbean and focus on breaking down systemic barriers limiting these entrepreneurs’ access to capital.
I was fortunate to have people who saw beyond my underprivileged background and realized my full potential, and I would not be where I am today without those allies. I am humbled to be able to do the same for hundreds more like me. Working with corporate backers and other investors, our multi-disciplinary team at WeShall will bring to life the vision of these entrepreneurs and create a new generation of BIPOC and women leaders.
We celebrate the life and works of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and his famous speech in 1963. I am happy that approximately 60 years later, I can play a small part in continuing the journey.
Thank you for your interest and support of this critical initiative. Working together, we can change the world.
Wes Hall, ICD.D
