Baltimore was recently ranked 2nd in economic opportunities for minorities in the country, and 5th among "Top Cities for Minority Entrepreneurs" (ExpertMarket.com, 2017). Maryland also drew praise as 1st in African American-owned firms with paid employees, 2nd in women-owned firms, 3rd in African American-owned firms (U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census, 2012). What is it about our beloved city and state that makes it ideal for this type of unprecedented growth and opportunity?
Find out the answer to these questions and more at the Waldorf School of Baltimore's 20th Annual Civil Right Celebration on Saturday, January 20th at 10:00 am. This year's theme, The Rise of the Minority Entrepreneur, will feature a panel of local experts and minority entrepreneurs, such as the Mayor's Office of Minority and Women Owned Businesses Development (MWBD) and Nicholas Mitchell of Noisy Tenants, who will speak to what is driving these exciting times.
This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshment will be provided by City Seeds, Le Monade, and Noisy Tenants.
