Every Industry Can Benefit From These Conversations
Black entrepreneurs have always been creative luminaries pioneering advances in innovation and technology.
Several Black-owned companies across the diaspora were created as a form of resistance to racism, prejudice and discrimination.
Difficulties continue to arise for Black-owned businesses but we continue to thrive.
Join us for an evening of presentations, panels and chats on marketing, business funding, credit, tech entrepreneurship and building a business from the ground up. We'll even talk about what it felt like for one of our guests to turn down a deal on Shark Tank.
This is an event that you absolutely don't want to miss.
