Join us at our "Building Economic Power in Black Communities Through Business and Entrepreneurship" session, sponsored by JPMorgan Chase & Co., at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's (CBCF) 48th Annual Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. This panel discussion will be held on Friday, September 14, 2018 from 11:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. ET at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center (Room 103A).
Our session will be centered on exploring the economic impact of Black entrepreneurs, improving the flow of capital to Black-owned businesses, and identifying the support that is needed for Black-owned businesses to prosper. Despite a 35%
increase of black-owned firms across diverse industries, inequities remain that exacerbate the racial wealth gap can play a leading role in fostering investment strategies to help spur economic opportunity for minority-owned businesses.
