We encourage you to mix business with pleasure by starting your summit with The Iowa Soul Festival Friday, September 19 , featuring Al Jarreau and Lala Hathaway. On Sunday night, network with Black professionals from all over America at our welcome reception. Monday, you will learn from industry leaders how to develop your business at each phase of growth!

We are proud to welcome Maggie Anderson, Author of "Our Black Year", and IEDA Director Debbie Durham, among other distinguished mentors and business leaders. Expect an engaginge, interactive discussion on how overcome adversity, and learn skills you need to be a successful business owner.


The IBBS was formed in 2009 to address the economic disparities between businesses of color and those owned by Iowa’s majority. This summit was designed to create a support network regardless of the length of time in business. The goal for the 2014 Iowa Black Business Summit is to provide continued support to aspiring and current business owners in our communities throughout the state of Iowa with education, networking and testimonials. The Summit will create an atmosphere that fosters unity, camaraderie and collaboration. Iowa will be a premier state for businesses of color.
