Summit to Honor Leading Entrepreneurs and Highlight Innovative Approaches and Best Practices for Aspiring Business Owners
ATLANTA, GA --- The Millionaire Mastermind Academy, a leading 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to the education, support and growth of women-owned business enterprises, will host its first annual 2019 Millionaire Mastermind Entrepreneur Summit and Awards Luncheon, Dec. 16 in Atlanta. The Summit offers corporations, organizations and government entities the opportunity to reach more than 500 business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs, while giving those same entrepreneurs an opportunity to network and learn from business leaders across multiple vertical markets. During the event, $10,000 in seed money will be awarded to an aspiring entrepreneur who presents the most complete business pitch in the Millionaire Mastermind's first-ever Pitch Competition.
"The Summit is a natural extension of the Millionaire Mastermind Academy," said Dr.Velma Trayham, President and CEO of the Millionaire Mastermind Academy. "It's an outstanding opportunity to not only recognize female business owners who are moving the needle in their businesses and communities, but to also provide a practical road map to aspiring entrepreneurs, helping them fulfill their economic goals and objectives."
The Summit features a veritable "Who's Who" of business, government, entertainment and philanthropic mavericks, including leading economist, educator and entrepreneur, Dr. Julianne Malveaux; Nancy Flake Johnson, CEO, Atlanta Urban League; comedian and talk show host, Kiana Dancie; Earnest Pugh, National Recording artist and entrepreneur; Catherine B. Horgan, CEO, Brand Aspirations; Nicole Durio, Madison Brothers, Consulting Group and many more.
Held at the Atlanta Hyatt Regency at 265 Peachtree St. NE, the Summit starts with registration at 8 a.m., and in addition to the afternoon awards luncheon, features break-out workshops and seminars throughout the day with informative topics such as Access to Capital/Financial Literacy, Community Reinvestment: Public/Private Partnerships and Contracting Opportunities with Government Entities, to name a few.
Another key component of the Summit is a HBCU Start-Up Lab. Moderated by Dr. Malveaux, the objective of this segment is to educate, attract, mentor and develop college students who show a talent and desire to become successful entrepreneurs, but who lack the knowledge to get started.
Already reaching more than 4,600 women and helping 25 of them launch successful businesses, the Millionaire Mastermind Academy sees its work as life-changing: "The Millionaire Mastermind Academy was founded in Atlanta for a reason," Trayham said. "I look around and see so much untapped potential here. Many women have incredible ideas and concepts for business, but just don't have the direction or guidance. Too often, this keeps them in a dead-end cycle of either living paycheck-to-paycheck or, in some cases, struggling to gain any type of steady income. These same women, with the right training, guidance and support, can end their cycle of poverty and begin to create generational wealth for themselves and their children."
