Dr. Pamela C.V. Jolly is Founder and CEO of Torch Enterprises Inc, a strategic investment firm committed to minority business growth and development.  Torch Enterprises has assisted over 1000 entrepreneurs, national non-profits, trade organizations, the Federal Government, foundations and financial institutions.

For over a decade Pamela has been committed to developing data-driven strategies that lead to wealth as a legacy in the African American Community.  Her focus is to pursue business opportunities that pass the torch from one generation to the next, building wealth through ownership and equity. Dr. Jolly uses her extensive background in financial services, strategy, community development, and theology, to help entrepreneurs and organizations succeed. Pamela co-authored the strategic assessment for the rebuilding of the Greater New Orleans area post Hurricane Katrina. She also underwrote over $200 Million in support of the rebuilding efforts in Mississippi. These two experiences sparked her desire to find alternative ways individuals and groups could work together to rebuild their communities with ownership and equity. This level of commitment has made Pamela a sought-after speaker delivering more than 100 keynote speeches across the country and abroad.

Prior to founding Torch, Pamela developed her skills in the areas of finance at NationsBank, now Bank of America, Strategic financial consulting at Accenture, Private Equity at Dubois Partners, and Market Research and Data Analytics at Rosetta.  

In 2010 Pamela created The NarrowRoad™ to formalize her unique approach to working with business owners, investors, and their communities. The NarrowRoad™ Method is a proprietary business process system that infuses culturally relevant elements of society with financial literacy, management, investment, and risk. In 2015 she expanded the use of the NarrowRoad™ System to educate and empower organizations and communities on specific ways to close the wealth gap.

Most recently Pamela designed a strategy for The National Association of Real Estate Brokers using the NarrowRoad™ Method. The strategy’s programmatic goal is to create two million new black homeowners through integrated partnerships with government, national and local banks, churches, local community leaders and real estate professionals in 93 cities across the country. 2018 will mark the next inflection point for Torch Enterprises with the launch of a national Legacy Wealth Initiative.  

Pamela is a graduate of Hampton University (B.S.), The Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania (MBA), Boston University School of Theology ((Th.M.), and the Graduate Theological Foundation (Ed.D). Her best-selling book detailing The NarrowRoad™ was released in 2015 to wide acclaim.
