Celebrating Inclusive & Equitable Entrepreneurship
November 12 @ 7:30 am - 9:00 am
The 2019 event will be a breakfast gathering on Tuesday, November 12 from 7:30 to 9:15 am at Virginia Union University’s Living and Learning Center in Richmond. The event’s purpose will be to shine a light on the challenges faced by minority entrepreneurs and the actions our community can take to address those challenges. The event will: highlight our existing work to support minority entrepreneurship in Richmond in collaboration with our partners; provide a platform for local entrepreneurs to talk about the unique challenges they have faced; and share the outcomes of the work group we are convening to assess minority entrepreneurship and to develop strategies and recommendations to foster an equitable ecosystem for minority-owned businesses in Richmond. By the event date, the outcomes of that assessment will be completed and we will share those with event guests.
