Calling Entrepreneurs & Small Business Owners

UFSC DMV - In the mix
Urban Financial Services Coalition (UFSC) presents “In The Mix” an innovative empowerment campaign and networking opportunity to connect entrepreneurs and financial professionals through a promotional marketing campaign and networking event that brings together both communities to vibe, create, collaborate and uplift each other.

November is National Entrepreneurship month, a time to recognize and celebrate the successes and contributions of our nation’s entrepreneurs and express our support for them and their work in innovating and mapping the future. Established in 2012, National Entrepreneurship Month evolved from the first National Entrepreneur’s Day in 2010.  As we celebrate Entrepreneur Month, UFSC is seeking entrepreneurs and business owners to promote to our network of financial professionals and partners in southern Maryland, Washington D.C. and Northern Virginia areas.

Our goal in the month of November is to be intentional about “economic empowerment” in the DMV area by promoting black and brown businesses, entrepreneurs and small business owners to financial professionals who may buy become customers, supporters or a resource.

In The Mix” Entrepreneur / Small Business Owner Program Benefits: Your company will be highlighted in the November “In the Mix” Brochure

Wall Street / Main Street

 

 

Fannie Mae - Freddie Mac

The trillion dollar “Wall Street/ Main Street” discussion is back in the spotlight. Your action for equitable treatment is required.

 

Multi trillion dollar home loan giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac,  Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSE), would be BANKRUPT and EXTINCT if not for the 2008 BAIL OUT and subsequent rescue by the US taxpayers as a response to the 2008 world financial crisis.

 

Home-Ownership

Talk is now increasing about removing the GSE conservatorship protection.  Plenty of government and private organizations from the United States Congress to the Mortgage Bankers Association of America, the Independent Community Bankers of America to Moelis & Company are making proposals.  This removal would let investor stockholders have access to possible profit gains and it would also remove financial responsibility from the taxpayer.

 

The Urban Financial Services Coalition (UFSC) is concerned that not only the stock investors and industry be given proper treatment, but that the communities of color that have lost trillions of dollars (CBS News June, 2013) in home ownership be given proper consideration.
