In celebration of Black entrepreneurship, the Coalition of Black Excellence is hosting its inaugural summit to nurture relationships between business owners and investors.

The CBE Summit will include panel discussions, workshops, and other events for businesses looking to expand and build networks across the country.

Our goal is to continue to be a space where individuals and organizations dedicated to elevating the black community can come together, give back, amplify our collective impact, and celebrate excellence in the Black community,” CBE Founder and CEO Angela Johnson said. 

CBE is a non-profit that launched in 2017 after a collective of organizers began planning CBE Week to help support and elevate Black businesses in the San Francisco Bay area. The first CBE was hosted in September 2018, and the organization has since expanded to other events like its summits and a gala with the United Negro College Fund.

The speaker sessions for the CBE Summit are categorized into four themes: Hear from Experts, Build Your Career, Advance Your Business and Impact Our Community. The speakers will focus on six tracks and topics that include tech, entertainment, finance, government, health, and education.

The CBE Summit is February 21 – 24 in San Francisco. Tickets can be purchased here.
