What's In It For Your Brand


21st Annual Summer Celebration

Economic Prosperity Creates Awesome Communities

Dear Partners and Prospective Sponsors:

When we held our first Expo, more than 20 years ago, we wanted to create a platform for minority businesses to promote their products and services. Two decades later, we have surpassed that goal and expanded our mission to enhance the quality of life and advance economic prosperity by creating opportunities for small business advancement and individual wealth development.

With year-round programs such as our BOOST one-on-one consultations, our Lunch and Learn series, The Black Money Tree podcast and so much more, we are able to offer great resources to help businesses scale. Thereby having a positive impact on the community. Our youth entrepreneurship program, Aspire, provides teens with training in marketing, accounting, business plan writing as well as essential problem-solving and leadership skills to help them get a head start in entrepreneurship and general business.

As we prepare for our largest fundraising event, I want to extend this exciting opportunity to help enhance our mission while demonstrating your social responsibility initiatives to key stakeholders. This year, we are excited to welcome business icon and NBA Hall of Famer Earvin “Magic” Johnson, who is sure to bring an inspiring message to business owners and consumers alike.

Please take a moment to review our packages and benefits for the 20th Annual Summer Celebration, and we look forward to discussing working with you as a partner.
