Origin Story

Founder Casey Ariel started Blaze Group in December 2020, after spending a decade structuring multi-billion dollar loans for tech companies - but never seeing other Black women on deal teams or the receiving end of funding. She left to take her knowledge + passion to the streets.

We partner with leaders to activate community-first approaches to leadership development. In addition, our Blaze Group app elevates self-guided learning for users through natural, soul-affirming chats with our AI Business Advisor, named B.
