On April 6th, 2017, we had the distinct honor of hosting our first MBE 2 MBE Open House with SCMSDC at our offices. With over 60 attendees and Corporate representatives from Toyota USA, Douglas Emmett, and Messner Reeves LLP, the event provided an invaluable opportunity for MBEs and non-certified entrepreneurs alike to share knowledge, generate prospects, and increase profile visibility in a low-pressure environment.
The evening of premier networking was unique in its ability to engage MBEs with one another, as well as in expanding the exposure of the attendees beyond the MBE and Corporate community to other networks including Women Business Enterprises (WBEs), the Asian Business Association Los Angeles (ABA LA), local businesses, and non-profit organizations like the Fulfillment Fund. With philanthropic efforts engraved in our company’s philosophy and core values, we believe that by connecting common philanthropic causes between businesses, we can foster stronger and long-lasting relationships with corporates and fellow MBEs, WBEs, VBEs, and LGBTQ enterprises.
We would like to thank our friends at CE Supply Store for attending and for the beautiful succulent desk organizer. As an independent woman and minority-owned small business, CE Supply Store offers a diverse and innovative selection of quality cases, sleeves, charging solutions and other home and office organizers. By combining unique styling with creatives features, it delivers one of the best consumer electronics accessories that enhances the user’s experience with new technologies.
We thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to connect with fellow MBEs and WBEs, including Hybrid Collective, Glass Ladder Group, Azzurro Travel, ASWB Engineering, Icon Blue, Trinus, Boatright-Simon Picture + Sound, among many others. We would also like to extend our gratitude to our in-kind sponsors Suja Juice, Milk Jar Cookies, Angie’s Boom Chicka Pop, and Wholistic Nut, for providing delicious and healthy refreshments.
The MBE 2 MBE Open House is held every other month at a select MBE’s office in various locations throughout Southern California. For more information about this networking opportunity, please click here.
