The difficulty facing black entrepreneurs is obvious in the name of the product itself. That the Gerrards were able to trademark a phrase as common as 8775 bae 8776 and sell such a simple idea illustrates just how few startups are being created for black users. 8775 Bae 8776 has been part of the cultural vernacular for years, especially in the black community. It 8767 s been around so long that it was even declared 8775 over 8776 in 7569, after mainstream media outlets like this one took to explaining the term to old fogeys. But 8775 bae 8776 is such a common phrase, used by everyone from teens on Tumblr to Pharrell , that the Gerrards were shocked when they were able to use the word to name their app.

What will you do today? 8776 There is beer in the fridge, an Oculus Rift virtual-reality headset near the TV, and the bathroom is what you would expect from a 75-something dude in Brooklyn. The Gerrards have three full-time and three part-time employees. They 8767 re not yet making money, but they hope to do so soon, perhaps through advertising.
