Sustaining the Family Legacy - Building the Community

We have a deep understanding of the challenges and considerations that drive both your business and your family. Years of experience working alongside business owners and family members, hearing what matters to them and providing lasting solutions, have taught us how to nurture a family business and how to serve our communities with love.

Larry and Ingrid have been inseparable since meeting in 2010. The power team shared a drive to tackle issues that paralyze our communities and always knew they wanted to support small businesses with limited resources and grand ideas.

With years of experience as an IT Support Specialist, Larry understood the importance of a support team and the technology-related barriers faced by many entrepreneurs, service agencies, and individuals venturing out into this brave new digital world. Growing up in an entrepreneurial household that practiced community activism and spiritual devotion, Larry also knew the challenges faced by non-profit agencies and organizations striving for social good, but competing for resources and lacking skills and access. His expertise grounded Ingrid's eclectic background in program evaluation and management, creative design, and research. Together, their work beautifully blends unique flavors of technology, business strategy, creativity, and inspiration.

In 2012, Larry and Ingrid launched Black Star Elements as a subsidiary of Black Star Services LLC, a social venture group whose purpose is to build and launch companies working for the good of human society. The vision of Black Star Elements is to empower individuals and organizations to create value and sustainability for their business by removing technology barriers.
