Chicago Black Entrepreneurs Festival

Empower. Network. Build. Support. Encourage.

BLACK OWNED BUSINESSES!

Saturday, June 29, 2019 11 AM - 8 PM CST

752 East 114th Street, Chicago, IL, 60628

Chicago Black Entrepreneurs Festival aims to be a 10-hours empowerment event that brings together black owned businesses, aspiring entrepreneurs and the communities they touch. The goal is to confidently demonstrate that the Black dollar can stay within the community longer than the average 6 hours that has been documented in current statistics.

This event features well over 200 vendors, live entertainment, motivational speakers, workshops and community resources; all working collaboratively to showcase what is possible to achieve when we buy from and employ one another.

Chicago Black Entrepreneurs Festival aims to provide a dynamic space for black entrepreneurs to showcase their businesses and create synergistic relationships with other black business owners. This collaborative event will reinforce positive perceptions of black owned businesses by demonstrating professional, courteous and organized customer service while offering quality products and services at reasonable prices. This event exemplifies that we can add as much value to our own communities as those businesses located downtown and on the Magnificent Mile.

As a result of these efforts, this event will

empower black communities to shop and buy black.

Network black owned businesses and entrepreneurs with one another.

Build economically strong and financially literate communities.

Support the growth and long-term sustainability of black owned businesses.

Encourage the diverse talents and knowledge of black entrepreneurs. If we Network, partnerships and fellowship we can build up our community.
