Long Island is a region rich in entrepreneurial diversity. However, there is a huge gap between entrepreneurs of minority representation, (specifically those of African-American and Latino descent) and opportunities for funding.
_

By 2050, nearly two in three residents will be people of color. Inclusive growth is key to the future of Nassau and Suffolk Counties; entrepreneurship will play a major role in the region’s economic vitality.
_

To bridge this gap, Minority Millennials Inc. has teamed up with Launchpad Huntington and the Workforce Development Institute to co-host LI's first minority focused “Shark Tank” style pitch night. The evening will focus on connecting minority entrepreneurs with assets and resources.
_

Entrepreneurs will be given a few minutes to pitch an original business idea to a panel of business experts and an audience of entrepreneurs, small business owners, potential investors, students, and community leaders.
_

Featured judges include celebrity entrepreneurs— Marcus Damas, Founder of Fueled By Culture & Anthony Frasier, Founder of ABF Creative.
