Black Entrepreneurs Day is a primetime special that brings together business and entertainment in the form of an event dedicated to highlighting and educating Black entrepreneurs. John’s first Black Entrepreneurs Day launched virtually last year, garnering over seven million views and winning two Webby Awards for the best remote business and finance event on the internet.
John says he wanted Black Entrepreneurs Day to be “bigger and better” the second time around. “I have a great team behind me who was saying, ‘Yeah, why don’t we do it live? Why don’t we do it in the Apollo theater? Why don’t we utilize all of the resources that our sponsors have?'” he says.
