Proudly Connecting Small & Minority Business Owners

Breakfast Conversations™ would like to announce the cancellation of the 7th Annual [2021] networking event. This was a tough decision, but a necessary one since Covid-19 capacity restrictions made the event no longer viable. Also, we feel more comfortable in knowing our small business community is not being put in harm's way with the novel coronavirus, for that would be a burden we could not bear.  We hope and have plans to convene our annual Breakfast Conversations™ Business Networking in 2022!

Our Vision: To create a synergy between the small & minority business community of Charlotte, N.C., our city leaders, state leaders, and the corporations located here.



Let's Work Together

There is a demand for the City of Charlotte to create synergy between corporations headquartered in the city and with the small & minority business community. The intent is to bridge the gap of corporations utilizing small & minority business owners to fulfill their service needs.

Our Mission: To create a sustainable network of small & minority business owners that can fulfill the demand for services and goods to corporations within our city and state.
