OVERVIEW
MONEYBALTIMORE is a regional conference offering two tracks designed to help minority and small startup companies understand the steps for growing and funding their new businesses.

Last year, MoneyBaltimore was a sold out event, setting the bar for Minority and Small Business conferences on the East Coast.  Our attendees were very pleased and MoneyBaltimore won an award from the Mayor's Office in Baltimore for our impact on the community.

The next MoneyBaltimore conference will be held May 5th 2018. To help prepare business owners, we have a series of events leading up to the May 5th conference.  See below for details, registration links and speaker and sponsor options.
