The Minority Media & Telecommunications Council is unveiling a new organization to promote minority businesses in the digital age.
According to MMTC executive director David Honig, the attendees at its annual Access to Capital in Telecommunications Policy Conference in Washington will be asked Tuesday night to vote on a name and officially launch what he called a "new movement" of minority digital entrepreneurs."
MMTC has been pushing the Federal Communications Commission to help out with more diversity initiatives in the broadcast space and better enforcement--MMTC would say enforcement period--of its EEO rules.
However, MMTC is also about helping folks help themselves. To that end, the conference also features an opportunity for entrepreneurs to meet with bankers, brokers and other investors.
