State of Black Business Forum



“The Right Time. The Right People. The Right Conversations. The Right Results.”

The State of Black Business will inform members and community leaders on the climate, condition, and trends of African American business.  It will provide a statistical overview of the state of black business, the trends in various industries, and potential growth opportunities.

The Forum is critically important for attendees to discuss and design a plan for greater economic impact within our communities. You will want to join this discussion with black business leaders from around the city!

The VIP Reception held October 20th will recognize the inaugural 2016 class of the Dallas Black Chamber Community Development Corporation’s Youth Entrepreneurship Program. Invitees to this event will include elected officials, corporate sponsors, community leaders, DBCC Board of directors and select Chamber members.
