"Since announcing the event, the response has been unyielding. In addition to providing viewers with an opportunity to both advance their education around entrepreneurship and be entertained from their homes, it's also made way to bring in new partners who want to be a part of advancing opportunities for our community, such as Robinhood," said Daymond. "With Robinhood's help, we are not only excited to add Dwyane Wade to the star-studded line-up, but to also expand the dialogue into financial literacy and investments." Robinhood's mission is to democratize finance for all, which the company achieves through offering intuitive and accessible tools for investors of the next generation.
Black Entrepreneurs Day presented by Chase for Business will feature incredible Game Changer Conversations Presented by The General Insurance featuring Shaquille O'Neal, Gabrielle Union, Jamie Foxx, LL Cool J, Robert Johnson, and many more, plus feature musical performances from Chance The Rapper, Questlove, and DJ Diesel.
