A partnership with the U.S. Dept. of Commerce's Minority Business Development Agency


The Emerging Business Leaders Summit (EBLS) exposed college students to entrepreneurial ideas and concepts while training them in the fundamentals of business enterprise.  The event itself was a comprehensive two-day conference and networking opportunity that targeted minority college students.  Students also participated in the National Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week Conference.  This integrated students into professional business forums and gave them an opportunity to experience the social dynamics of the business community.

Every year, the EBLS event ended with a Business Plan Competition.  Students competed from around the country and many of them went on to successfully operate their ventures.
