Preparing Black-Owned Businesses for Success
This event is in the past.
Join TechTown Detroit and our partners for a free, day-long virtual conference on Feb. 22 in observance of Black History Month as we prepare Black-owned businesses in Detroit for success through the global pandemic and beyond.
This inaugural conference will feature panels with business service providers, breakout sessions and a keynote speech by Maggie Anderson, author of “Our Black Year.” Ms. Anderson will share lessons learned from the economic empowerment project of marginalized Black businesses in the 21st century. Breakout sessions will range from the importance of maintaining personal relationships while building a business, to the history of Black-owned businesses in Detroit, and understanding your political power and role in local politics.
If you’re a Black-owned business, part of the business service ecosystem or simply curious how to support Black-owned businesses in Detroit, this conference is for you!
TechTown Entrepreneurial Education is made possible with support from Bank of America, Michigan Economic Development Corporation, New Economy Initiative, Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation and Walters Family Foundation.
