On Sunday, July 3rd, Walker’s Legacy hosted its largest Annual New Orleans Business Brunch Summit to date! The sold-out Summit was sponsored by Google, Planned Parenthood, and Wells Fargo and featured 20 expert speakers. Among our panelists were entrepreneurs in finance, beauty, retail, technology, law, and a host of other areas.

The Summit was organized into three panels: Going for Growth: Scaling Your Small Business, Getting to the Money: How to Finance Your Entrepreneurial Dreams, and Mompreneur: Unique Journeys to Success. We then transitioned into Entrepreneurial Clinics, a time where guests were able to connect one-on-one with experts in the areas of angel investing, supplier diversity, and the utilization of technology.

Some featured speakers and panelists included Nilka Thomas, Director of Diversity & Inclusion at Google, Joi Hunt-Venison, Founder & CEO of Super Weave XPress; Lisa Frison, African American Segment Leader at Wells Fargo, and Marsha Barnes of The Finance Bar.
