Style Magazine Newswire | 5/11/2016, 9:53 a.m.
Despite black women being the fastest growing entrepreneurial group in America, they continue to find difficulty becoming Beauty Supply store owners.The sizeable problem in this $15 billion-dollar industry is one that Beauty Supply Institute identified and decided to address. The institute, founded by a Black Beauty Supply Store owner and economics professor, who was threatened with a golf club by a Korean owner for shopping too slowly, will hold its 6th annual conference in August.
The 2-day conference at the Sheraton Atlanta Airport will consist of 1 day of classes that will address the obstacles in the industry and how the attendees can get around them and Day 2 will consist of a tour of trusted distributors’ facilities.
Since 2006, Beauty Supply Institute has opened over 80 stores in America, Canada and the Caribbean owned mostly by black women. The conference has attracted attendees from as far as the Netherlands, Switzerland and Africa.
All attendees will leave with an instructional book on how to open a beauty supply store and a Beauty Supply Store Start-Up Action Plan outlining a specific checklist on where to go to get the help they need.
Registration is currently $449 and increases monthly. Conference is free for Capstone Elite members who have never attended.
The summer conference will be held in Atlanta, Georgia on August 6th and 7th, 2016.
