Watkins 49 Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer, Secretary, and a Director Ronald D. Busby, Sr.* 62 Director nominee Patrick F. Linehan* 50 Director nominee Julianne Malveaux* 67 Director nominee ____________* This individual has indicated their assent to occupy such position on the effective date of the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part. Shawn D. Rochester. Mr. Rochester is our President, Chief Executive Officer and a member of our Board of Directors. Mr. Rochester has served as Chief Executive Officer of Good Steward LLC and as Founder of PHD Enterprises since June 2013, and as Vice Chairman of Highland Poe since April 2021, which entities provide, collectively, services relating to financial consulting, economic advocacy, corporate strategy and equitable growth. He is also a sought-after speaker, an economic development advocate and the author of the critically acclaimed book, The Black Tax: The Cost of Being Black in America, which book is a data-driven, evidence-based account of the massive systemic financial burden Black Americans have endured since the early 1600s. Since his book’s debut, Mr. Rochester has advised Fortune 100 C-suite executives and given presentations before state legislatures and the United Nations on how his PHD economic framework leads to truly inclusive and equitable economic strategies that drive jobs, business and capital strategies that spur a stronger U.S. and international eco-system. Mr. Rochester has received citations from the New York State Assembly and the New York City Council for his work in economic development and was also selected by the International Human Rights Commission Relief Fund Trust (IHRC-RFT) to be listed in its 2019 almanac as one of the Top 100 Human Rights Defenders for his efforts to educate people on the financial cost of discrimination (past and present) against members of the African Diaspora in America. In addition, Mr. Rochester is a seasoned corporate development and strategy executive who has: (1) extensive strategic planning experience with global industry leading organizations in the midst of major technological change; (2) executed transactions globally and evaluated scores of acquisition targets; (3) a deep understanding of the global competitive landscape having spent many years travelling extensively across Asia and Europe in pursuit of new organic and inorganic growth opportunities; and (4) led cross functional teams to execute complex cross border projects to drive incremental revenue and profit. During his time in the private sector, from October 2007 to May 2013, Mr. Rochester served as the Global Director of New Business Development for Amphenol Corporation’s AITC Group, responsible for mergers, acquisitions and identifying new growth opportunities for a substantial portfolio of businesses covering the IT and Data Communications marketplace. Earlier in his career, Mr. Rochester worked for IBM Corporation in Corporate Development, Finance & Planning, and Treasury. Mr. Rochester also was a member of IBM’s Emerging Business Opportunities (EBO) program, which has been featured in a Harvard Business School Case study and a Stanford Business School Research Paper. As a member of IBM’s EBO program, Mr. Rochester represented Corporate Finance and worked closely with Corporate Strategy and various global general managers to identify, fund and monitor businesses that represented significant revenue generating opportunities. Mr. Rochester holds a Master’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, with a concentration in Accounting and Finance, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Rochester. We believe that Mr. Rochester is well-qualified to serve as a director of our company due to his corporate development, strategic planning and transactional experience with global industry leading organizations, as well as his status and experiences as a thought leader in, and deep connections in, the minority-owned business community. Robin D. Watkins CPA. Ms. Watkins is our Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer and Secretary, and is a member of our Board of Directors. Ms. Watkins, who started her career implementing Sarbanes-Oxley mandates for US Airways and other public companies, brings more than twenty years of strategic financial and operational 107 Table of Contents accounting to our company.

Ms. Watkins is well-versed in financial risk mitigation assessments, internal controls, and compliance audits.

Ms. Watkins holds a BA in Accounting from Drexel University and is a member of the American Institute of CPAs. We believe that Ms. Watkins is well-qualified to serve as a director of our company due to her experience advising and providing services to public companies and other organizations, and her background in strategic financial and operational accounting. Ronald D. Busby, Sr. Mr. Busby is one of our director nominees. As President and Chief Executive Officer of the U.S. Black Chambers, Inc. (USBC), in which capacity he has served since he founded USBC in March 2009, Mr. Busby brings a lifetime of small and minority-owned business, executive management and public policy expertise to our company.

Number and Terms of Office of Officers and Directors We will have five directors upon completion of this offering. Our board of directors will be divided into two classes with only one class of directors being elected in each year and each class (except for those directors appointed prior to our first annual meeting of stockholders) serving a two-year term. In accordance with Nasdaq corporate governance requirements, we are not required to hold an annual meeting until one year after our first fiscal year end following our listing on Nasdaq. The term of office of the first class of directors, consisting of Shawn D. Rochester and Robin D. Watkins, will expire at our first annual meeting of stockholders. The term of office of the second class of directors, consisting of Ronald D. Busby, Sr., Patrick F. Linehan and Julianne Malveaux, Ph.D., will expire at our second annual meeting of stockholders. Our officers are appointed by the board of directors and serve at the discretion of the board of directors, rather than for specific terms of office. Our board of directors is authorized to appoint persons to the offices set forth in our bylaws as it deems appropriate. Our bylaws provide that our officers may consist of a Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, President, Vice Presidents, Secretary, Treasurer, Assistant Secretaries, and such other offices as may be determined by the board of directors. Director Independence Nasdaq listing standards require that a majority of our board of directors be independent. An “independent director” is defined generally as a person other than an officer or employee of the company or its subsidiaries or any other individual having a relationship which in the opinion of the company’s board of directors, would interfere with the director’s exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director. Our board of directors has determined that Messrs. Busby and Linehan and Dr. Malveaux are “independent directors” as defined in the Nasdaq listing standards and applicable SEC rules. Our independent directors will have regularly scheduled meetings at which only independent directors are present. Officer and Director Compensation None of our officers or directors has received any cash compensation for services rendered to us. Commencing on the date of this prospectus, we have agreed to pay to an affiliate of our sponsor a total of $10,000 per month for office space, utilities and secretarial and administrative support. Upon completion of our initial business combination or our liquidation, we will cease paying these monthly fees. Other than as set forth elsewhere in this prospectus, no compensation of any kind, including finder’s and consulting fees, will be paid by us to our sponsor, officers, and directors, or any of their respective affiliates, for services rendered prior to or in connection with the completion of our initial business combination. However, these individuals will be reimbursed for any out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with activities on our behalf such as identifying potential target businesses and performing due diligence on suitable business combinations. Our audit committee will review on a quarterly basis all payments that were made to our sponsor, officers or directors, or our or their affiliates. Any such payments prior to an initial business combination will be made using funds held outside the trust account. Other than quarterly audit committee review of such payments, we do not expect to have any additional controls in place governing our reimbursement payments to our directors and executive officers for their out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with identifying and consummating an initial business combination. After the completion of our initial business combination, directors or members of our management team who remain with us may be paid consulting or management fees from the combined company. All of these fees will be fully disclosed to stockholders, to the extent then known, in the tender offer materials or proxy solicitation materials furnished to our stockholders in connection with a proposed initial business combination. We have not established any limit on the amount of such fees that may be paid by the combined company to our directors or members of management. It is unlikely the amount of such compensation will be known at the time of the proposed initial business combination, because the directors of the post-combination business will be responsible for determining officer and director compensation. Any compensation to be paid to our officers will be determined, or recommended to the board of directors for determination, either by a compensation committee constituted solely by independent directors or by a majority of the independent directors on our board of directors. 109 Table of Contents We do not intend to take any action to ensure that members of our management team maintain their positions with us after the consummation of our initial business combination, although it is possible that some or all of our officers and directors may negotiate employment or consulting arrangements to remain with us after our initial business combination. The existence or terms of any such employment or consulting arrangements to retain their positions with us may influence our management’s motivation in identifying or selecting a target business but we do not believe that the ability of our management to remain with us after the consummation of our initial business combination will be a determining factor in our decision to proceed with any potential business combination. We are not party to any agreements with our officers and directors that provide for benefits upon termination of employment. Committees of the Board of Directors Our board of directors will have two standing committees: an audit committee and a compensation committee. Subject to phase-in rules and a limited exception, Nasdaq rules and Rule 10A-3 of the Exchange Act require that the audit committee of a listed company be comprised solely of independent directors, and Nasdaq rules require that the compensation committee of a listed company be comprised solely of independent directors. Audit Committee Prior to the consummation of this offering, we will establish an audit committee of the board of directors. Messrs. Busby and Linehan, and Dr. Malveaux, will serve as members of our audit committee, with Mr. Linehan serving as chair of the audit committee. Under the Nasdaq listing standards and applicable SEC rules, we are required to have at least three members of the audit committee, all of whom must be independent. Each of Messrs. Busby and Linehan, and Dr. Malveaux, meet the independent director standard under Nasdaq listing standards and under Rule 10-A-3(b)(1) of the Exchange Act. Each member of the audit committee is financially literate and our board of directors has determined that Mr. Linehan qualifies as an “audit committee financial expert” as defined in applicable SEC rules. We will adopt an audit committee charter, which will detail the principal functions of the audit committee, including: • the appointment, compensation, retention, replacement, and oversight of the work of the independent registered public accounting firm engaged by us; • pre-approving all audit and permitted non-audit services to be provided by the independent registered public accounting firm engaged by us, and establishing pre-approval policies and procedures; • setting clear hiring policies for employees or former employees of the independent registered public accounting firm, including but not limited to, as required by applicable laws and regulations; • setting clear policies for audit partner rotation in compliance with applicable laws and regulations; • obtaining and reviewing a report, at least annually, from the independent registered public accounting firm describing: (i) the independent registered public accounting firm’s internal quality-control procedures; (ii) any material issues raised by the most recent internal quality-control review, or peer review, of the audit firm, or by any inquiry or investigation by governmental or professional authorities within the preceding five years respecting one or more independent audits carried out by the firm and any steps taken to deal with such issues; and (iii) all relationships between the independent registered public accounting firm and us to assess the independent registered public accounting firm’s independence; • reviewing and approving any related party transaction required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404 of Regulation S-K promulgated by the SEC prior to us entering into such transaction; and • reviewing with management, the independent registered public accounting firm, and our legal advisors, as appropriate, any legal, regulatory or compliance matters, including any correspondence with regulators or government agencies and any employee complaints or published reports that raise 110 Table of Contents material issues regarding our financial statements or accounting policies and any significant changes in accounting st
