The four-day conference offers “entrepreneurial resources through paneled discussions, and high-level marketing opportunities with successful entrepreneurs and business leaders,” according to NBCC Co-founder Kay DeBow. And, to that end, the organization this year added a new component – the Entrepreneurial Ecosystems Day.

“The Entrepreneurial Ecosystems Day is comprised of start-ups in various stages, and various types of organizations located domestically and abroad, interacting as a system to create and scale new start-up companies,” said DeBow. “Stakeholders participating on this day include co-working spaces, accelerators, incubators, universities, entrepreneurs, and investors.”

And, as it turns out, Wayne, who has appeared at the previous three NBCC annual conferences.

During his presentation, Wayne will discuss how to tap into available government contracting opportunities, why a small business may want to consider government contracting, and the information government contractors must have in order to succeed.

DeBow, for her part, says that participants, by listening to Wayne, will get the chance to learn ways of growing their businesses, finding new business, and developing new approaches to success.

“We want our members and attendees to take away new ways of moving toward collective success,” she said.

There are 2.6 million Black owned businesses in the United States.  Black businesses account for over $138 billion in revenue each year

According to the U.S. Bureau of Census, there are 2.6 million black-owned businesses in the United States, and black businesses account for more than $138 billion in revenue each year. The federal government makes available to black-owned businesses – as well as businesses owned by women and/or veterans, and businesses located in economically disadvantaged parts of the country – access to contracts that larger businesses cannot access.

Wayne, along with his colleagues at US Federal Contractor Registration, makes available information about these types of opportunities, as well as training on how to locate, research, and respond to opportunities.

“Completing the steps necessary to become a government contractor isn’t all you have to do to succeed as a government contractor,” said Wayne. “You must actively pursue opportunities, market your business, and learn how to best respond to opportunities.”

He added that tapping into all available resources, such as those that the NBCC provides, is also key to success.

“NBCC makes sure that its members have the tools they need to succeed in the United States as well as abroad,” said Wayne. “I’ve seen firsthand just what this access means for small business owners.”
