Black Business Month is a time to acknowledge and appreciate Black-owned businesses across the nation and the ways in which entrepreneurship can be a pathway towards a diverse and equitable economy. 

Join United States Congresswoman Karen Bass (CA-37), Small Business Majority, U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), Greater LA African American Chamber of Commerce (GLAAACC) and Vermont Slauson Economic Development for an event celebrating the contributions of local small business owners and an overview of your community's small business resources. 

Our first panel will feature two small business owners who will share their experiences, including their challenges and successes running a small business in the city of Los Angeles. 

Our second panel will be dedicated to sharing resources and will cover the following topics:

  • Access to capital and funding options
  • Federal updates and additional statewide resources
  • Tapping into federal contracting opportunities

We will wrap up with a Q&A session!
