Flourish Media Conference (FMC) is celebrating its 3rd annual women’s conference and has partnered with Magic City Center and Thriver Lifestyle to bring more partnership and funding opportunities for women of color entrepreneurs and business owners.
This two-day conference on February 22-23, 2019, has grown bigger each year and continually works to close the gap and address the issues of income inequality, education and innovation as it relates to women of color businesses. FMC’s social media reach numbered at over 1.6 million impressions in 2018 and continue to increase each year.
Behind the Leaf
One of the key differentiators of FMC is their 501(c)(3) beneficiary charity, Behind The Leaf, which helps minority and low-income women see small business ownership as a viable opportunity for economic advancement by offering accessible educational products, workshops, and networking events. Attendees are entered to win scholarship packages that include the following; monetary business scholarship up to $1500, web hosting, contact management tools, project management tools, subsidized time with an accountant, subsidized time with lawyer, personalized marketing material and a free buddy pass to the 2020 Flourish Media Conference.
Connects women with investors
This 3rd annual conference addresses one driving effort: connecting women with willing investors. VIPs will have the opportunity to LIVE PITCH to investors for the chance to walk away with up to millions of dollars for their ventures.
Past keynote speakers include Radio Host & On-Air Personality Felisha Monet of 99 Jams, Editor Talia Oliver of The Shade Room, credited with changing the landscape of journalism for its ability to draw in 8 million social followers and reach 94 million viewers.
