BDPA Sponsor ConnXus Partners with National Urban League

ConnXus, a Web-based platform that connects minority- and women-owned businesses with buyers and suppliers looking to meet diversity objectives, announced its partnership with the National Urban League.

In the next year, ConnXus and the National Urban League will host joint events for small minority- and women-owned businesses in the 10 U.S. cities that are home to National Urban League Entrepreneurship Centers.

ConnXus received a $200,000 investment from CincyTech in March as part of a larger seed-stage investment round to expand the management team, build national partnerships and help the company scale. ConnXus was launched by Rob Robinson, above, in 2010 and has since posted $100 million in contract opportunities.

BDPA is proud to note that both ConnXus and CincyTech are corporate sponsors!
