About the Event


Recognizing the accomplishments, leadership and
many successes of Florida’s minority entrepreneurs.

BBIF Florida (BBIF) and the Financial Business Training Institute (FBTI) are proud to host the Harambee Celebration. Join us as we celebrate Black History Month and recognize the achievements of our clients across the state that exhibit the determination, charisma, dedication and entrepreneurial spirit of Florida’s first Black millionaire, Mr. Abraham Lincoln Lewis.

In East African Swahili, Harambee is a work chant or rallying cry, which means working together. Falling in the heart of Black History Month, the Harambee Celebration is proud to salute minority business entrepreneurs. The 2017 Harambee Celebration will recognize awardees that embody outstanding leadership, strong business foundations, superior products and services, tenacious entrepreneurial drive, clear sustainability objectives and comprehensive commitment to impacting communities by creating jobs and driving economic impact.
