The Summit

In August of 2021, we hosted our first virtual summit where attendees learned ways to grow their businesses. Topics covered included:

BLACK ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Black business owners are typically at a disadvantage when compared to their white counterparts.

Additionally, most Black business owners are not able to get outside funding.
