Minority technology entrepreneurs will have the chance to showcase their concepts at the third annual Minority Innovation Weekend (MIW) later this fall.
The National Society of Black Engineers – Baltimore Metropolitan Area Chapter (NSBE-BMAC) will host MIW 2019 on Oct. 12 and 13 in the University of Baltimore Thumel Business Center.
MIW provides minorities launching new businesses an opportunity to connect with each other and gain exposure to investors.
“The early stages of entrepreneurship can be a particularly isolating time due the do-it-all nature and time constraints of starting a business,” said Sir Walter Richardson, the MIW 2019 coordinator. “Even when given the chance to engage the broader technical or entrepreneurial world, the demographics are such that minorities can still feel isolated.”
