As an eager entrepreneur, you probably already know that tomorrow, May 4, kicks off the 2016 Black Enterprise Entrepreneurs Summit (ES), at the Loew Hotel Miami, Miami, FL. This yearâ€™s summit is ‘Where Innovation Meets Capital.’
What this means is that there will be a collection of executives, entrepreneurs, creatives, venture capitalists and investors all in one place looking to collaborate in order to take business—your business, to the next level.
