Welcome to the Blistey family. We are one of the biggest platforms dedicated to empowering BIPOC-owned businesses globally. Our mission is to create an inclusive and thriving marketplace where businesses owned by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) can connect, grow, and thrive. We are proud to support over 3,000 businesses worldwide through our app, “one of the best apps for the savvy traveler,” and website.


At Blistey, we believe in the power of community and the importance of representation in the global economy. Our platform is designed to help the community discover BIPOC-owned businesses' rich diversity and unique offerings, making it easier for consumers to enjoy and support these enterprises. Whether you're looking for a new favorite restaurant, a boutique with unique fashion finds, or professional services from experts in their fields, our comprehensive directory has something for everyone.


Our story began with our CEO Franklin Forbes's vision to level the playing field for BIPOC entrepreneurs who often face systemic barriers in the business world. By providing a dedicated space for these businesses to be seen and heard, we aim to foster economic equity and empower communities. Our platform offers a range of features designed to help companies succeed, including marketing tools, networking opportunities, and resources tailored to the unique challenges BIPOC entrepreneurs face.
