Last year, close to 200 attendees from around the country assembled in one room at Georgia Tech to take part in the groundbreaking National MBE Manufacturers Summit 2016, a huge milestone for the manufacturing industry. Never before has an event of this magnitude targeted specifically to MBE manufacturers convened. We thank all of our sponsors for their generosity and help in making the Summit an overwhelming success and we appreciate all of the attendees for taking their valuable time to participate. Here are highlights!
Global Soap Project Founder and Keynote Speaker, Derreck Kayongo’s Summit kick off wasted no time inspiring the audience through his personal and thought-provoking story-telling.
Kayongo immediately began sharing his inspiration behind the Global Soap Project. His powerful story left attendees with three thought-providing messages: (1) The power of innovation comes through experimental observation; (2) Never underestimate your idea; (3) Understand the power of the marketplace.
History in the Making:
The Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) teamed with The Healthcare Supplier Diversity Alliance (HSDA) to bring more MBEs into the healthcare industry.
All Poster Walk submitters were surprised with a free sponsorship to the 49th Annual Chicago Business Opportunity Fair (CBOF) hosted by the Chicago Minority Supplier Development Council. More than 2,000 corporate executives, minority business owners, and government officials attend each year this foundational event that created a spotlight on the strategic benefits of supplier diversity.
