Founding Story

Amid the COVID-19 global pandemic, BTG Co-Founders were eager to leverage their business acumen to provide pro-bono consulting services to minority-owned businesses impacted by the pandemic.

The team quickly realized that because the work must be done virtually, they could provide services and welcome team members from anywhere in the world. With a strong passion for BIPOC economic mobility, consulting, and mentorship and after a short period of ideation, Bridging the Gap (BTG) Consulting was born.

Since then, BTG has grown to become a reputable national organization preparing exceptional diverse students for roles in various business functions.
