ESSENCE® EXPERIENCES AVAILABLE FOR SMALL BUSINESSES AND ENTREPRENEURS!
According to a recent study, minority women companies account for one in three women owned firms. That is inclusive of African American, Asian American, Latina, Native American/Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander. Also, the number of businesses owned by black women grew 322% since 1997, making black females the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the U.S! While business has accelerated over the years, it's imperative that growth and sustainability continues, which is why ESSENCE® is welcoming small businesses and entrepreneurs to join us for the 2016 ESSENCE® Experiences. Be a part of this innovative opportunity to vend products, explore new ideas, recruit leading talent, learn how to build your business, or network with industry makers.
