Black Professionals Mixer #PitchBlack

March 23, 2017, 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This is our Winter after-work mixer focused on Black young professionals and entrepreneurs. Come mix, mingle, and meet new likeminded people. Come tell people what you do and how you do it. This is a lively, unpretentious “happy hour” event fostering networking of Black professionals, entrepreneurs, and businesses.

  • First drink free before 6pm
  • Appetizers provided
  • Business and social networking friendly and encouraged
  • Prizes for competitors
  • Raffles for guests

Also, 2017 is the year of action in the Black community. Part of our commitment to action is uplifting Black entrepreneurship and businesses in our communities to highlight ways to keep dollars in our community longer. #PitchBlack includes an “elevator pitch” competition to see who has the slickest verbiage and style to wow potential customers, investors, and business partners, so you can learn about cool Black-owned businesses in the area.

If you have a business you want to advertise, let us know!!
