Event description
The 2nd Annual Black Business Summit will celebrate black business owners and bring together leading business experts.

About this Event

Pan African small businesses are being left out of the economic boom in Oregon. In August 2018, the Portland Business Journal reported that the number of black-owned businesses receiving Small Business Administration (SBA) loans by Oregon banks plummeted in the years following the economic recession, dropping from at least 50 loans per year a decade ago, to single digits in 2010. Recent figures show that only three black-owned businesses in Oregon received SBA loans in 2017. Realizing public goals of inclusive economic development requires an approach targeted towards historically disinvested and disenfranchised groups.

The Summit will highlight business leaders we have met along the way, who will share their inspiring stories of success and perseverance. The Summit programming will build rich moments for dynamic networking opportunities as well as breakout sessions on diverse topics. We will provide the list of workshops soon.
