2020 Entrepreneurs & Innovators Conference Wrap-up:

Though the event was virtual we attempted to give the conference as much of a live feel as possible as we delivered the conference from a photography studio. Conference featured comedian Jeff Giant and 13 speakers including former NFL Star and master franchisor of restaurants and hotels Donnell Thompson, UA Center for Business & Economic Research Senior Economist Dr. Sam Addy, and radio station owner/entrepreneur Ms. Tori Bailey to name a few (visit www.alblackcc.org for a complete list of conference presenters & topics).
