Expand your network of contacts -- and of potential business partners -- at the M/WBE Mixer.

Make sure you bring plenty of business cards!
The Mixer will offer:
- Open Networking to meet fellow business owners along with representatives of the Winston-Salem Chamber, the Winston-Salem Black Chamber, the City of Winston-Salem, the Winston Salem Urban League, Davenport Engineering, the Access Center for Equity & Success, and others. Open to all. Registration closed for this category.
- Construction Trades Speed Networking. Move from table to table for short, seven-minute one-on-one meetings with general contractors and engineers who use subcontractors. Registration closed for this category.
- City Department Speed Networking. Move from table to table for short, seven-minute one-on-one meetings with city departments that purchase goods and services. Registration closed for this category.
Light hors d'oeuvres and refreshments will be served.
Hosted by the City of Winston Salem's Office of Business Inclusion & Advancement in partnership with the Winston-Salem Black Chamber, the Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce and the FTCC Small Business Center.
