Calling all entrepreneurs! It is official–registration for the 2016 Black Enterprise Entrepreneurs Summit is now open. This means it’s time to perfect your pitch, tighten your business plan, and put your game face on as you connect with the best and brightest in creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
This year’s Entrepreneurs Summit is focused on the marriage of innovation and capital, as it is the formula for success. What this means for you is that it is time to leverage your hard work, planning, and creativity to attract funding for your business. Face it: We, the people, need exactly what it is that you have to offer. You just need the means to offer it.
If this is your first Entrepreneurs Summit, prepare to be where:
- deals are made
- products and projects are financed
- contracts are acquired
- relationships are forged
- dreams are realized
The intention of the Summit is for you to gain the vital resources needed to advance your idea or improve your business model. The Entrepreneurs Summit will also grant you access to millions in angel and venturing financing as well as industry leaders and experts with invaluable insight on building and succeeding in business. The information and tools will be right there waiting for you, all you have to do be ready and show up.
