2021 Empowerment Business Conference

This year is our 2nd Annual Empowerment Business Conference building upon the success of our Inaugural Business Conference. We will host our two-day conference on Tuesday, August 3rd and Wednesday, August 4th. Attendees will learn from respected community leaders and business professionals from a variety of industries. The conference agenda will be expertly crafted to help businesses both big and small take advantage of growth and development opportunities in Central Florida.

This year, the robust schedule will include an opening ceremony featuring former Miss USA and award-winning international speaker, coach, and entrepreneur Deshauna Barber. Additionally, we will host a panel discussion, multiple breakout sessions, an empowerment luncheon, as well as an in-person networking event, and this is just on day one! On day two, we will host an in-person workshop titled “Pitch for Success: Where Entrepreneurs and Investors Meet.” We invite you and all members of the Central Florida business community to consider one of the opportunities described in the sponsorship packet on page 3, by Monday, July 16, 2021.

Funds raised will be used to assist the Chamber’s mission of being the principal advocate in fostering economic success to African American owned businesses in the Central Florida community. Furthermore, proceeds will assist with workshops, seminars, and programs that are focused around our four pillars: Advocacy, Access to Capital, Contracts, and Entrepreneur Training and Development for its Chamber members.
