The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) opened its doors to nearly 400 stakeholders for the first-ever 2023 Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) Connect Summit on February 23, 2023, to raise awareness and increase the participation of MBEs and higher education institutions in DOE funding opportunities. A virtual offering for those unable to attend in person was made available via recorded sessions the following week, reaching over 150 additional stakeholders.
We are excited to welcome you here for a momentous day of learning, connection, and community. At this convening, we will offer incredible opportunities for Minority Business Enterprises (MBE), Department of Energy Program Offices, the National Labs, higher education institutions, financial institutions, and non-profit organizations working to realize a just clean energy future and building lasting and generative connections. Together we will learn how to engage in business with the Department of Energy and engage with leaders in government and industry to learn more about how the energy industry is responding to historic federal investments in clean energy and communities.
