Client Success Story: Kewanta Brooks

CLIENT NAME: Kewanta Brooks

Kewanta Brooks is the founder and CEO of Elite Kids TV, a company that provides educational resources for kids ten and under that feature African- American children characters. She started the business in April of 2020 with three employees and has grown to have ten.

Elite Kids TV is a subscription-based comprehensive learning platform enhanced by entertainment and diversity. Their forthcoming video library includes lessons in everything from phonics to history, how to manage time, and how to start a business. Children can also learn how to cook, speak languages, and have financial literacy. They have flashcards and books available now in the eCommerce store, and their primary customers are families and educators who care for children under the age of ten.

Brooks learned about the Women’s Business Center after receiving a LiftFund microloan and went on to have one-on-one appointments with a WBC representative. Brooks feared running out of capital, but the microloan enabled her to purchase inventory and pay her contractors successfully.

“[My favorite part of my experience with the WBC is] how friendly everyone is. They are invested in my success and the success of my company.” – Kewanta Brooks

On a daily basis, Brooks can be found fulfilling orders, answering emails, and increasing brand awareness. Brooks is proud of the recognition her company has received, having been featured in NBC, Capital One, and Forbes. Elite Kids TV also received the Facebook Small Black-Owned Business Grant.

Brooks is inspired to continue the work that she does by her children and the legacy she hopes to leave behind. Elite Kids TV plans to eventually launch a streaming app, aiming to reach thousands of users, and have at least a quarter of a million subscribers in five years. They also aspire to one day be able to give grants to mompreneurs and kidpreneurs.
