MED Week – Synergizing Growth for Minority Entrepreneurs

For the unaware, there will be an event next week which will pop out of your timeline, and you don’t want to miss it. It’s an event which has been in the making for the past 30 years and led by the MBDA (U.S. Department of Commerce and Minority Business Development Agency). We are talking about the prestigious MEDWeek Conference 2015.

What is MEDWeek

In the world of business, constant change is critical to ensure growth. One of the most important elements business owners need in this endeavor is finding infrastructural support to grow their enterprises to meet local as well as global demands. Over the years, MBDA has contributed tremendously in boosting minority business community in the U.S., and every year MEDWeeks are evident of this fact. This conference will prove to be a helpful guide for startups.

MEDWeek is the much touted event happening this year because it’s a conference which has been designed to synergize and energize owners with learning sessions, workshops, presentations of latest innovations, introduction of disruptors, and appreciation of demonstrated leadership – all for the minority business community to diversify their businesses opportunities locally and internationally.

What to Expect

From 18 to 21 October 2015 in San Diego, California 6000 attendees will be present there to host 700 exhibition booths, deliver inspiring speeches, conduct workshops on topics ranging from how to win government contracts to tips to access funding for carrying out innovations in the fields of technology, medicine, and inventions. Wait there’s more.

An awards reception especially dedicated to those who have contributed to the minority business community through job creations, product and services offerings, and support for local minority communities will also be hosted. Some of the winners who have made it to this list include veterans like Della Clark, President of the Enterprise Center and John Lewis, U.S. Representative for the 5th Congressional District of Georgia. Others include business development champions like Jimmy Ferguson, Owner and Operator of J-C’s McDs, LTD.; Monetta Stephens, Manager of Supplier Diversity, Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc.; and Rodney S. Sampson, Founder and CEO of Opportunity Hub, Kingonomics, and the Legacy Opportunity Fund.

What’s in it for you?

Now here’s why you need to attend this prestigious conference. Apart from belonging to a minority community, you are a business owner, corporate CEO, procurer, or government representative who wants to capitalize on the opportunities which are available to the majority. And although the U.S. has progressed significantly in terms of democracy and equality, the fact remains, the big fishes in the market have the major chunk of opportunities for conducting their businesses profitably. The small ones are left hankering for a few bites. This is where MBDA comes in – to make opportunities available exclusively to the minority business owners through networking, business matchmaking, displays, and workshops.

To take your business to the next level, this is a great opportunity to learn how to push your small business brand forward to those who matters, and those will make your business soar towards expansion, growth, and higher profits.
