LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new business fair is designed to help connect small businesses owned by minorities and women with larger companies.
The first-ever Louisville Metro Diverse Business Fair will take place at Fourth Street Live! on Oct. 13.
Louisville Metro Council President David Tandy says he hopes to bring the event back every year.
The event's goal is to give minority and women business owners a place to network with large local corporations.
"There have been many companies here in town who have taken and done their jobs to be successful business enterprises, but haven't been afforded the opportunity to meet with some of those larger corporations to foster growth and development of their companies and their firms," Tandy said.
All minority, female and disadvantaged business owners are invited to participate. The event is free of charge.
