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
FCC to help out with more diversity initiatives in the broadcast space and
better enforcement--MMTC would say enforcement period--of its EEO rules,
but 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.
