Minority Business Centers host tech event in state capital

Fifty minority entrepreneurs gathered in Sacramento, California for yet another successful training and networking event held by the Minority Business Development Agency's Northern California Business Centers, operated by ASIAN, Inc.

Coordinated by San Jose MBDA’s Siew Yee Lee, the “Discover Your Next Big Opportunities in the Tech Industry in 2016” event demonstrated the Minority Business Centers' focus on strategic business development in various technology sectors. Lee has been a pioneer of the Northern California MBDA Business Centers' expansion of service into the Sacramento area. For the past year, Lee has been busy promoting the Centers' services and establishing ties with the many business resources in Sacramento.

The tech workshop was held at the offices of California Capital Financial Development Corporation, signatory to a Strategic Partnership memorandum of understanding with ASIAN, Inc. This event was a result of the collaborative effort of this MOU, with generous support from sponsor Cathay Bank.

Guest speakers from the California Community Colleges, Sacramento Municipal Utility District and Cathay Bank provided information regarding innovation and tech transfer grant funding, high-tech financing and other key resources for minority entrepreneurs wishing to broaden their tech horizons. Presentations were followed by a panel discussion moderated by the Small Business Administration's Regional Deputy Director. The session was joined by angel investors, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Export Assistance Center and Vista IP Law Group.
