2 Day Event - Completed


Event Registration Status:  No longer accepting registrations (Cutoff on Thursday June 10, 2010)

Description:

The purpose of the MBDA Summit is to bring minority entrepreneurs, thought leaders, practitioners and stakeholders together in for a single purpose:  to strengthen public policies and programs directed at fostering the growth and competitiveness of minority business enterprises.  Much energy and enthusiasm was generated during the first Summit last year and there has been tangible progress, too. 

The 2010 MBDA Summit will feature discussions on:

the legal landscape confronting race-based business programs

revised regulations and policies associated with minority business programs

new programs and strategies for minority business growth

legislative activities of stakeholders and Congress

In addition, the Summit will include opportunities for stakeholder collaboration, business meetings and a congressional reception.  With your participation, we can continue to build a strong global network of minority businesses, and strengthen and devise strategies designed to increase the capacity of MBEs so they are economically viable and sustainable into the future.
