2018 was our 7th year recognizing outstanding immigrant and refugee entrepreneurs and we were honored to have Gregg Bishop, Commissioner of the New York City Department of Small Business Services, presenting the awards. Click here to see highlights!
On December 4th, BCNA was pleased to present an important and timely panel discussion - "Grit, Wits, and Good Old American Values: Refugee and Immigrant Owned Businesses Revitalizing American Communities" - led by noted TED Talks Fellow and first-generation Ghanaian-American Michael Rain, creator of The ENODI Project. The well-attended event, which was co-hosted by Kwame Marfo, BCNA Board Member and Co-Founder & Managing Partner at the Africa Empowerment Fund, and Dave Sidhu, Project & Acquisition Finance Analyst at Santander Bank and a member of BCNA's Finance Committee, was presented in partnership with Impact Capital Forum.
It was a great honor to be invited to speak at the 2018 World Investment Forum about the work we've done at BCNA to support refugee entrepreneurship in the United States as well as to participate in a panel discussion on Entrepreneurship, Migration, and Sustainable Development Goals. This important conference, which is held every two years, provides a global platform for engagement and dialogue on emerging and key issues related to investing for sustainable development. It had a particular importance this year as the current US administration's unfortunate anti-immigrant and refugee rhetoric has overshadowed the fact that the US has a well-developed refugee resettlement process and a progressive 18-year-old program to support refugee entrepreneurship.
