Monday, September 16 – Intro to Black Entrepreneurship Week: State of Black Business
Please join us for an evidence-based and politically neutral discussion of the black business landscape. Challenges faced by these businesses are in some ways similar and in some ways different than those faced by other communities (including firms owned by women, veterans, and those in rural places). Panelists will explore historical data, current projections, and talk about why increasing black business ownership is beneficial for North Carolina’s economy. We hope you’ll join the dialogue over what types of new policies may help promote business ownership for the African American community.
- Tiffany McNeil, City of Raleigh, Economic Development and Innovation

Registration opens at 9:30 am in the Oak Forest Ballroom. Coffee and refreshments will be provided.
