(Birmingham, AL) - We have all learned a lot since the COVID-19 Pandemic. Now business owners have the opportunity to learn from industry professionals who are willing to share their knowledge. For the FIRST time since shut the entire world down, IGNITE! will host its 4th Annual Empowerment Summit in person, Tuesday October 25, 2022 at Protective Stadium from 8am-3pm.

Speakers will include Dr. Cheryl Wood (Morning Huddle), Lamar Tyler (Master your Marketing), Grainne McNamara (The Power of You), Jimmie & Aftan Strong (Legal Matters), Michael Shepherd (Why Credit Matters), and will be hosted by Jus Nik.

The Summit is designed to empower, connect, motivate, and equip minority businesses (especially Black-Owned enterprises) with the information and motivation needed to compete at a level of excellence that is the gold standard in the global marketplace. The theme is appropriately titled "No Business Left Behind: Recession Proof".

The purpose of the Empowerment Summit is to:

1. IGNITE! Rejuvenate, and Rekindle Minority Business Owners

2. Empower the next generation of Minority Leaders | High School & College Students

3. Promote Education, Entrepreneurship, and Non-Traditional Careers

Founded in 2019, IGNITE! bridges communication gaps between organizations, service

providers, and minorities. As a non-profit organization, IGNITE! serves as a supportive network that

ensures disadvantaged business owners are prepared. Access to funding is one of the biggest

challenges for minority business owners, so IGNITE! hosts several ongoing workshops focused on how to

apply for Federal, State, and Local Funding.
