Event Description
The 'Reimagine, Reset and Reinvest for a Sustainable Future' series is part of the African-American Chamber of Commerce's Business Empowerment Program - a collection of series designed to engage, enlighten and empower Black businesses. The focus of this series is to help small black owned businesses recover from the impacts of COVID-19 and build a sustainable infrastructure. Each month, the Chamber will bring you an Empowerment Zone Seminar. Through a series of professional development classes, develop the skills you need to take your business to the next level and access the resources you need to grow your business. The Black Business Accelerator will provide black businesses with the opportunity to:
  • Learn about new grants and funds available for Black & Brown businesses
  • Hear opportunities from anchors who are looking to work with more Black-owned business
  • Get to know business development cohorts that are free and designed to help you get to the next level
