Welcome! We are, Artez & Dorinda Young,

a husband and wife team with an excitement for entrepreneurship. We have a genuine desire to see businesses succeed and grow. When a community supports its people, the opportunity for stable and healthy neighborhoods increase. Greenlexi plays a pivotal part in helping socially-conscious consumers and quality Black-owned business to connect with each other. 

Greenlexi is an online directory paying homage to Victor Hugo’s (The Negro Motorist) The Green Book. The Green Book was a guide that allowed Black Americans to travel not only safely, but with dignity during the time of segregation in America. We are thrilled to create a modernized bridge that will bring black-owned businesses and consumers together, building towards a better tomorrow. 

Building Community One Relationship at A Time

Our goal at Greenlexi is to help bring back the greatness and vibrancy of commerce to areas that once thrived and to help create new places where great Black-owned businesses can serve those who are in search of them.

Supporting black-owned businesses assists the entire economy.

Black-owned businesses are more likely to hire minority workers, some of those most affected by unemployment.

  • From 2012 to 2017, minority-owned small businesses grew by 79 percent.

  • From 1997 to 2015, the number of businesses owned by African-American women grew an amazing 322 percent (making them the largest growing group of entrepreneurs at that time).
