National ACE National AANHPI Business Summit
May 17 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm EDT
National ACE is honored to collaborate with the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) to host the National AAPI Heritage Month Business Summit. We will gather to commemorate the contributions and achievements of the AAPI business community. The Summit will feature elected officials and dignitaries, corporate partners, community leaders, and small business owners to discuss access to capital, access to technology, and opportunities within the CHIPS & Science Act for AAPI entrepreneurs.
In the modern economy, access to capital and technology are intertwined. From broadband connectivity and quality, to e-commerce and digital literacy, AAPI small businesses must be fully incorporated into the digital economy in order to remain competitive and access the capital and resources necessary to start, retain, and grow their businesses. The CHIPS & Science Act presents a large investment in our country’s tech industry, manufacturing, innovation, and STEM workforce. It is essential that AAPI entrepreneurs are aware of the opportunities in this legislation, in order to take advantage of contracting opportunities, be fluent in the tech landscape, and understand how to stay competitive in an increasingly digital world.
Our strategic partners and stakeholders welcome you to join us to help amplify the voices of our AAPI community when we need it the most.
