This event is designed to help empower and illuminate Black-owned businesses in the DMV. It’s time to be more intentional about our support!

About this event

Black America garners some $1.5 trillion in annual disposable income. Internationally, that’s more than the Gross Domestic Product of the 12th wealthiest nation on earth. The thing is, though, while we are top consumers who demonstrate phenomenal brand loyalty, we could do a whole lot better on the other end of the spectrum: Growing and supporting our own businesses!

Honestly, isn’t it time to be more intentional with our spending? Shouldn’t we all be doing more to support our Black-owned businesses?

We say “yes” and “yes” again!

Come out and attend “Black-Owned”. Support a Black-owned business. Meet some of the area’s most dynamic Black business owners. Network. And tell a friend!
