This is a cocktail style Flights & Bites event, featuring up to 7 chefs creating 3 small dishes each, as well as up to 7 craft beverage makers, offering an array of delicious drink samples.
Although small businesses and business creation are key drivers of the American economy, BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) entrepreneurs have consistently experienced barriers in access to capital, holding back both our economy and our nation's talent from reaching its full potential. Meet amazing entrepreneurs of color working in our culinary, beverage, hospitality and maker communities, and learn about the challenges and opportunities they face and how we can support their work.
