Black entrepreneurship has been on the rise for the last decade and half. Currently, there are almost 2.6 million black-owned businesses in the U.S.  As the number of black entrepreneurs grows, the number of events, conferences, and platforms designed to encourage this growth have also been on the rise.

There are several events popping up all over the country that target entrepreneurship in the black community. Here are just 3 major ones that will be taking place in the months to come that are a must-attend for any black entrepreneurs looking to fund or grow their business.
