Dynasty Radio NY had the pleasure of attending the Sistahs In Business Expo DMV and it was nothing short of amazing! Located at the University of Maryland, College Park, there were over 75 female entrepreneurs promoting their brands and selling their merchandise with the motto, "When my Sistah wins, We all win!"
Aisha Taylor Issah, Founder & CEO of the Sistahs in Business Expo, is a successful entrepreneur, ordained minister, and college professor. Over the years, she and her work have been featured in numerous publications and media outlets including Black Enterprise, Sheen Magazine, NBC, CBS, ABC, and FOX. In 2005, she co-founded TAYLORmade ~ Professional Career Consulting with her sister, a full-service career consulting and recruiting firm. Aisha launched the Sistahs in Business Expo (SIBEXPO) in 2017, with the goal of providing an accessible space where entrepreneurial women of color could grow and showcase their businesses at an affordable rate.
The Sistahs in Business Expo (SIB Expo) is the country's only multi-city small business expo created specifically to celebrate and empower entrepreneurial women of color, the largest and fastest growing demographic of entrepreneurs in the nation. SIB Expo provides an accessible platform where women of color can significantly expand their reach and grow their businesses. While other small business expos usually require costly vendor fees, the SIB Expo offers a more cost-effective, yet high quality option for small businesses, thereby guaranteeing their ability to earn more on their investment.
As a multi-city venture, the SIB Expo attracts crowds in major cities across the U.S. who support and celebrate entrepreneurial women of color. Since their inaugural tour in 2018, SIB Expo has landed in Newark, NJ; Philadelphia, PA; Columbia, SC; and Atlanta, GA. Now entering their third year, we are excited to return and are adding additional markets.
With an overwhelming response since their launch, SIB Expo has featured a variety of notable speakers including MC Lyte, Vivica Fox, Cathy Hughes, Gizelle Bryant, Kim Fields, Nicole Walters, Cynthia Bailey, and many others. They’ve been blessed to forge partnerships with leading brands including AT&T, Miss Jessie’s, Black Enterprise, Sanaia Applesauce. Radio One, Sheen Magazine, Upscale Magazine, and many others.
In addition to their expos, their brand has been expanded to include the Sistahs in Business University, created to provide in-depth training for entrepreneurs on how to start and scale their businesses. In Jan 2019, they've also launched our weekly PrayerCast, a live podcast where we gather with women from all over the country to pray for the success of their businesses.
At the Sistahs In Business Expo DMV, each panelist dropped gems on how entrepreneurs can protect their businesses, build their team, and sustain during a pandemic. Celebrity guest panelists Cynthia Bailey and Bevy Smith shared their experiences and provided everyone with their wisdom, knowledge, and business expertise. The Sistahs In Business Expo is empowerment at its finest. Here women of color can stand together in solidarity with one goal, to build each other.
