Testimonials

“The conference is always an inspiring venue to allow me as a WBE to reflect on my business and look for opportunities to grow. The WBENC National Conference does not disappoint!”

“WBENC keeps raising the bar with an innovative approach to maximize exposure of WBEs to corporations and networking activities.”

“Wonderful event. I was so inspired and it sparked something in me I have needed for a long time.”

“I thought the conference was outstanding—exceeded my expectations! My only regret is that I couldn’t clone myself to participate in more Business Labs and coaching.”

“This has to be one of the most successful events I have attended thus far, because of the turnout and collaborative platforms with the Business Labs.”
