The ConnectingKing Elevate Series is a part of the Vernard Alexander brand of "The Minority Networking Exchange" which strives to increase the amount of successful minority owned businesses in Western PA. Visit http://www.vernardalexander.com/ for more information. 


This is accomplished by a series of social and business networking events, individual business consulting and helping others gain access to funding ($10,000 or less). 


The purpose of the ConnectingKing Elevate Series is to give men and women of color the tools and resources needed to further develop their personal and entrepreneurial endeavors.
