The BIPOC Business Expo is unique to the Midwest as it is intended to exclusively highlight minority and people of color owned businesses looking closely at these entrepreneurs, their life stories, their motivation, and looking at the balance between managing their families and running their businesses at the same time while planning for sustainability and growth. The expo workshop consists of 5 panelists focusing on the following topics: Business planning, legal, Insurance, Finance, Marketing and Mental Health. Each panelist will be present on their topic for ten minutes and there will be a question-and-answer period by the audience. We would like to extend our thanks to Chase Bank for sponsoring the workshop and providing  free tickets to business owners. 

Theme: Rebuilding Foundations-The Do’s and Don’ts of doing Business

Topics: Business planning, legal/Insurance, Finance, Marketing, Mental Health
