For the first time, close to 200 attendees from around the country assembled in one room at Georgia Tech to take part in the groundbreaking National MBE Manufacturers Summit 2016, a huge milestone for the manufacturing industry. Never before has an event of this magnitude targeted specifically to MBE manufacturers convened. We thank all of our sponsors for their generosity and help in making the Summit an overwhelming success and we appreciate all of the attendees for taking their valuable time to participate. Here are highlights:
Derrek Kayongo’s Summit kick off
We’re still reeling from the Global Soap Project Founder and Keynote Speaker, Derrek Kayongo’s Summit kick off, wasting no time inspiring the audience through his personal and thought-provoking story-telling. Kayongo immediately began sharing his inspiration behind the Global Soap Project. His powerful story left attendees with three thought-providing messages: (1) The power of innovation comes through experimental observation. (2) Never underestimate your idea (3) Understand the power of the marketplace.
