You're Invited to Black Wall Street Homecoming - Durham, N.C - October 12-14, 2016

Hello AGLN,

Hope all is well. I am reaching out to offer a special invitation to AGLN to attend Black Wall Street: Homecoming, October 12-14, 2016 in Durham, North Carolina. I met many of you during this summers summit in Aspen and would love for you to join me in Durham!


Please be sure to check out our website and video advertisements. View Website Here. And recent press on the event, here: The Welcome Return of Black Wall Street (via Huffington Post).


While the week offers an excellent lineup of speakers and events, our team has boiled down the value into 3 Great Reasons To Attend:

  • Exposure. Hosted in Durham’s downtown technology corridor, BWS: Homecoming brings guests from all over - including Los Angeles, Qatar, Chicago, Atlanta, Charlotte and Manhattan. Our guests are here to learn from each and increase deal flow and idea flow - we encourage you to use Black Wall Street as a platform to exposure your company.

  • Connections. BWS: Homecoming is a great event for your associates to connect with the best and the brightest people. In a world where social connections are social currency, Black Wall Street provides a network for you to both expand your personal network and recruit diverse talent to your organization.

  • Inspiration. Over the course of three days, keynote speakers and presenters will share unique stories on how they reached success. From entrepreneurs who raised $750M to launch the XM Satellite to the  architects that created the National Museum of African American History and Culture to advertising executives that build strategy for the NBA and State Farm, your associates will leave BWS: Homecoming inspired to create more value for themselves and your organization.

More on Black Wall Street:


Last year’s three-day, city-wide event brought forward over $100MM in VC networks, seven early stage pitches, panel discussions, 400+ direct program engagements and long-lasting professional connections. In response to the success of the Black Wall Street: Homecoming event, the model to celebrate innovation and entrepreneurship within diverse, multicultural communities was expanded to two new markets: Austin, TX and Washington, DC. This expanded footprint serves to further engage national industry influencers, BWS thought leaders and respected startup advisers, ultimately leading to meaningful exits and the exploration of deals outside the normal pipeline and referral sources.

Please email if you have any questions about the event!

Thank you,
