There’s a new resource for people of color building businesses debuting in D.C. this month.

Global Eye Entrepreneurs and The Melanin Collective teamed to organize The POC Entrepreneurial Bootcamp. The daylong event is set to be held August 18 at the Inclusive Innovation Incubator.

The day will include a series of workshops including breakout sessions on exploring identity, perfecting a pitch, acing a podcast and creating a self-care plan, said Gamal J. Palmer, founder of Los Angeles–based Global Eye Entrepreneurs, a nonprofit which supports male entrepreneurs of color. Global Eye partnered with the D.C.–based Melanin Collective, which provides resources to empower and educate women of color.

Palmer said organizers are focused on providing space for self-development and to grapple with challenges, as well as to gain the “hard skills” of building a business, whether it’s pitching or participating in an interview.

“You actually leave not just hearing about things, but with the skills and tools that you need,” Palmer said.

A big focus is also on building community, and so it’ll feature time with local business leaders and close with a networking event.

Anyone interested in attending is required to submit an application, found at the link below. According to Palmer, the applications are open until August 10.
