    I’m at the conference now – it’s going great! I LOVED all the information from the entrepreneurship boot camp and the opportunity they gave us to talk to the individual panelists before the next session started. I understand this is the first time MMTC has done this – do it again! The room was packed, and a lot of minority entrepreneurs are now well-armed to thrive!
