Creator of the Martha's Vineyard Black-Owned Business Directory

In 2019, India Rose created the Directory as a digital platform in response to summer visitors reaching out to her for Black-Owned business referrals; recognizing that she grew up on the Vineyard and was a year-round resident with knowledge of the business community. 2023 Marked its 5-year anniversary, with its third year in print as a glossy magazine.

India's background is in nonprofit leadership and strategic planning, but she has always had a strong entrepreneurial spirit. She is a Business & Nonprofit Consultant and is the owner of two clothing brands called Sideline and MV Streetwear Co. Through this lens, she understands the seasonal economy challenges in a tourist-driven environment for any island business, but especially the additional challenges presented in this environment for BIPOC businesses.
