  2. 2. Johnathan M. Holifield, Esq. Co-founder, The America21 Project Dear Sponsor, Thanks for your support of the Minority Biomedical Entrepreneurship Conference (MBEC). Your participation is demonstrable evidence of your strong support of an outreach that seeks to expand the number of minority entrepreneurs in the biomedical space. The MBEC is part and parcel of America21’s overall Inclusive Competitiveness strategy. Minorities are severely under-represented in the biomedical industry as both job seekers and job creators. The MBEC is the nation’s first national conference devoted directly to addressing this problem. We’re proud to partner with Bioenterprise in producing this historic event. We are already connecting with a fragmented field of professionals, educators, entrepreneurs and investors who are excited to be a part of new opportunities. Across the biomedical landscape there is a consensus of concern for the future of opportunities for minorities in the space. America21 is the leading visionary voice resonating within the heart of the concerned: professional associations, universities, corporations, small businesses, entrepreneurs and investors. Come to Cleveland and meet those who support the MBEC’s inaugural effort to develop future access channels of entrepreneurial opportunity. May 21-22 We truly appreciate your support of this historic event.Cleveland, Ohio Johnathan Holifield, Esq.
