This Year's Conference Returns to Ohio
The Black Enterprise Entrepreneurs Conference is held every year, hosted by Black Enterprise Magazine, and draws more than 1,200 entrepreneurs from across the country. This year, the conference will be held for the second time at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Columbus, Ohio on May 14-17, 2014. T.D. Jakes will be a keynote speaker.
For three days, business owners and executives meet with others to share information on business growth and development and investment strategies for business owners.
The Elevator Pitch
In addition to awards for talented and successful entrepreneurs, the conference also features the popular Elevator Pitch Competition. Entrepreneurs can submit their video business pitches ahead of time for a chance to be selected as one of the top 10 finalists invited to present their pitch in person at the Entrepreneurs Conference + Expo and win $10,000.
Black Enterprise Magazine and BlackEnterprise.com provide information for small business owners and entrepreneurs in the areas of money, small business management, and information and resources for start-ups and other small business owners.
