BLACK ENTERPRISE brings together hundreds of entrepreneurs and companies focused on sharing resources, funding ventures, building businesses, and closing the racial wealth gap
NEW YORK, May 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — BLACK ENTERPRISE, the nation’s No. 1 Black digital media brand, will bring back its national Entrepreneurs Summit as an in-person event in Philadelphia at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, May 18–20. The Entrepreneurs Summit is well established as the premier annual event dedicated to the success of Black entrepreneurs and the growth, profitability, and wealth-creation potential of Black-owned businesses. In partnership with Host sponsor Nationwide, BLACK ENTERPRISE will feature high-engagement elements, maximizing real-time, peer-to-peer learning, coaching, mentorship, and networking opportunities for attendees.
A major highlight of the multiday event will be an exclusive fireside chat with hip-hop Mogul, Actor, Producer, and No Limit Records Founder Percy “Master P” Miller, conducted by BLACK ENTERPRISE CEO Earl “Butch” Graves Jr. After a slow underground start, Miller achieved fame and success not only for himself but for many of his stable of artists, including Mystikal, Kane & Abel, and Snoop Dogg, who signed with No Limit in 1998 after falling out with Death Row. Miller has also established himself as a savvy businessman with a range of investments and interests beyond music.
The mission of the Entrepreneurs Summit is to provide access to the connections, capital, expertise, ideas, and inspiration established and aspiring Black business owners need to make money, build companies, and create wealth. The Entrepreneurs Summit will feature engagement-driven, content-rich sessions, workshops, and coaching designed to help entrepreneurs expand their business networks and position their companies for opportunities and growth. The relevance and urgency of the Entrepreneurs Summit is heightened by the emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion in response to the disparities revealed by the global coronavirus pandemic and a renewed sense of urgency around investing in Black entrepreneurship and closing America’s racial wealth gap.
“After successfully presenting this event as a virtual experience last year, we are extremely excited about the Entrepreneurs Summit’s return as a unique in-person experience, with all of the most enduring and valued elements of the premier national event for Black entrepreneurs, founders, and business owners,” says BLACK ENTERPRISE CEO Earl Graves Jr. “BLACK ENTERPRISE is more committed than ever …….
