The Millionaire Mastermind Academy, which educates and supports the growth of minority owned businesses, is hosting a free United Diversity Business Summit from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 15 at the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts.

The event has a selection of business experts and CEOs sharing innovative approaches and best practices to improve Arizona’s economic growth outcomes with minority business owners and entrepreneurs, according to a press release.

The “Enhancing the Entrepreneurial Ecosystem” summit — recovery mechanism to grow small and medium businesses and provide opportunities to support diversification and inclusion initiatives —  has workshops on mentoring minority entrepreneurs, accessing capital and more.

“The United Diversity Business Summit is designed to be an avenue for minority entrepreneurs and avant-garde companies to make a mark and propel to new heights, access opportunities, and build the businesses for the communities they live in,” said Dr. Velma Trayham, Millionaire Mastermind Academy founder and CEO of Thinkzilla Consulting Group, in the release.

“We are proud of the partnerships we created with the distinguished list of speakers and look forward to sharing their expertise with the Arizona business community.”

The event programming was designed to address topics that directly impact minority business owners and entrepreneurs, the release said.

“We are so pleased to be part of the Millionaire Mastermind Academy’s United Diversity Business Summit 2021 because MMA founder Dr. Velma Trayham has the vision, experience, and skills to bring entrepreneurs together for greater impact in Arizona, as she has done nationally,” said Ji Mi Choi, vice president of ASU’s Knowledge Enterprise and founding executive director of ASU’s Edson Entrepreneurship + Innovation Institute, in the release.

“The nonprofit mission of MMA and the business acumen and network they bring to the summit is a force multiplier for entrepreneurs.”

During workshops, the release noted speakers will highlight innovative approaches and best practices that corporations and entrepreneurs can use to improve economic diversity.

Among topics and speakers are:

  • Chris Camacho, Greater Phoenix Economic Council president and CEO, will present, “The Road to Economic Recovery,” sharing innovative business practices and pivot techniques that empower innovation in entrepreneurship.
  • Marcy Tibbs, financial specialist with Country Financial will host the workshop, “Taking Control: Financial Challenges Women Face” addressing topics like the importance of credit and maximizing social security benefits to help women strengthen their financial futures.
  • Sandra Watson, president and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority will lead the workshop “Arizona’s Exciting Economic Vitality Is Just Beginning” discussing the rapidly growing economic development of Arizona.

By spotlighting best practices and promising approaches, attendees will leave the Summit with new tools and a new paradigm for growth that adapts to a dynamic global marketplace, the release added.

The Millionaire Mastermind Academy is a 501(c)-3, nonprofit organization with a mission to educate and support the growth of women-owned business enterprises, strengthening the economic impact in the community as more than 5,000 women have been mentored through the minority business development programs.
