Event description

Description

MEDWeek in recent years has aimed to recognize the contributions of small minority business owners that play a role in Tennessee’s economy while providing best practices and strategies on how they can scale their business for maximum profit and impact. Last year, the conference’s focus shifted significantly. It exposed attendees to the best practices in public contracting, delivered from national experts in Seattle, Houston, Washington, D.C., Oakland and Nashville.

This year’s conference will build upon last year and is aimed at preparing small business owners to bid for public contracts. Oftentimes, many small and minority businesses are overlooked for these public contracts, despite many of these businesses being registered and certified with the government as qualified to secure such coveted work.

After feedback, several conversations, and multiple surveys, the center is partnering with legislators to create a statewide program to increase economic opportunities for emerging businesses. Leading up to, during, and after this year’s conference, the center will partner with several local chambers of commerce and others to host a series of listening sessions to learn more about minority business owners’ experiences with public contracting process. The listening sessions will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, September 26, Tuesday, October 3, and Tuesday, October 10, at theLab, located at 624-A Jefferson Street in Nashville.

These listening sessions will be used to inform future public policy and legislation to ensure equitable distribution of public opportunities.
