More than 300 participants attended the inaugural Native American Business Association (NABA) Kickoff Event
The newly formed National American Business Association kicked off their presence in a big way in August 2019. They held a Kickoff Event and Vendor Fair attended by more than 300 participants. The packed come-and-go event included many corporate and public sector agency tables where attendees could talk with buyers and supplier diversity professionals about doing business with them. In addition, several of the Native American tribes hosted tables to discuss their opportunities and to meet and greet minority-owned businesses interested in partnering and/or providing goods and services.
Lisa Hanlon, CEO of the Teltech Group is one of the organizers and NABA officers.
“We were excited about the overall turnout and reception,” said Hanlon. “The feedback was positive. NABA is focused on leading, connecting and empowering Native Americans in business. We bring value and are ready to do business with corporations and other minority-owned businesses alike.”
The NABA event was hosted at the Dallas/Fort Worth Minority Supplier Development Council’s Activity Center. NABA Partners include Acari, Blue Star Integrative Studio, City of Dallas, Cowboy Xpress Construction, D/FW MSDC, Elevate Business Capital, Fort Worth ISD, J. Teel Enterprises, Mahuya Industries, MBDA Dallas Business Center, Parkland Health & Hospital System, People Fund, Procedeo, SBA, TAG and Teltech Group.
Based upon the success of this event, NABA is planning another event for November of this year. Watch for more details.
