Event description


On Saturday, October 26, 2019 from 4pm-7:30pm at Marshall Heights Community Development Organization, we invite you to be our guest at our 11th Hustlepreneur 101. This event is meant to highlight the opportunities available in the IT field that people may have not known about, as well as provide insight on the industry as a whole.

For the past Year Black Affluence has been committed to providing quality events for the DC Metropolitan. Despite being the nation’s capital, there is a huge disparity among our people in regards to our financial stability and opportunities available. This is why we need your help to continue to fight for economic empowerment- specifically in communities of color.
