Dr. George C. Fraser
“For the first time in our history we will memorialize and celebrate with an iconic building the enormous contribution Black people have made globally to business development and capitalism within the African diaspora,” said Dr. Fraser.
“I’m overjoyed to have been the first Black Conference to be selected for this prestigious annual recognition from the premier business magazine in the world. We have always felt this way, but now the world knows it,” Frasier said of the honor.
To date, the PowerNetworking Conference has raised over $1.7 billion in new funding for Black-owned businesses and Black entrepreneurs, and brought its one-of-a-kind experience to major cities like Dallas, Atlanta, and Baltimore.
Fraser has spent the better part of four decades as chairman of FraserNet, a company that solely focuses on teaching effective networking, mission-driven entrepreneurship, and building and managing wealth for business owners and Black entrepreneurs who face difficulty following traditional routes to success, according to BlackNews.
