FREE Online Conference Reveals How To Start, Grow & Scale A Business
Fran Harris, Founder Of The Black Business Summitt
Austin, TX ( -- Over 10 million U.S. based African Americans identify themselves as entrepreneurs. Yet research also reveals that small businesses run by blacks are 75% more likely to fail than other demographics, namely Caucasians, Asians and Latinos.The Black Business Summit aims to change that.

Founder, Fran Harris, has led Fran Harris Enterprises, LLC, a business consulting & business optimization company for 23 years, and believes the key to helping black businesses succeed is simple: education, mentoring and accountability. "The Summit features 15 black experts who represent over $160 million in sales in the past 10 years alone," said Harris. "We agreed to do this Summit to send the elevator back down."

The Black Business Summit features experts in a variety of disciplines including online marketing, software development, raising capital, high ticket sales, launching a brand, taking an idea to income, Facebook ads, celebrity-building, publicity and publishing. In addition to Harris, experts include Kim Coles from the hit television show, Living Single, bestselling authors Brittany Hennessy and Ron Douglas, and millennial business expert, Micha Nixon.

"There's never been a better time to start, grow or scale a black business," said Harris, an ESPN announcer and former HGTV host, who appeared as a business and marketing coach on Good Morning America, The Today Show, BET and others. "If you leave the Black Business Summit without executing your business plan, that's your fault," said Harris. "Because we're literally giving away advice, strategies, tactics and techniques that have made us millions."

The Summit launches with Harris delivering the "Black Business State of the Union" address on a Facebook Live at 8 pm est on Monday, November 12, 2018, and wraps up with the "I Am Black Business" Pitch Contest Facebook Live that starts at 8pm EST Monday, November 19, 2018. Students can register at, and admission is 100% FREE.

"I'm committed to helping 10,000 black businesses start, grow or scale in the next 12 months," said Harris, the Dallas native who started her first business (snow cone stand) at age 9. "This Summit is just the beginning."
