Over 100 minority-owned businesses were present on Tuesday night, November 14, at the Glass City Enrichment Center to meet “traditional and non-traditional lenders,” said Erik Johnson of Ivy Development and one of the event organizers.

Money Talks, a minority and disadvantaged business networking event, was organized to enhance minority-owned businesses’ connections and knowledge about available financial resources.

The event is hosted by City of Toledo, Ivy Development Agency, Lucas County, Metroparks Toledo and the Minority Business Assistance Center.

The Enrichment Center is a new Metroparks facility on Front Street at Morrison Drive.
