Upcoming Events

Come Celebrate The Success of Our Entrepreneurs on August 14th!

AnewAmerica will be honoring and celebrating its entrepreneurs on August 14th, 2014 from 6 to 9 pm at the Kaiser Center Roof Garden in Downtown Oakland! Our clients have put in very hard work to grow their microbusinesses - that's why we hold a yearly exposition, "Building Dreams, Changing Lives: A Celebration!" where they can all gather and showcase their amazing products and services.

The evening will feature the entrepreneurs' hard work in a marketplace in which over 30 graduates of AnewAmerica's Business Incubator program will gather to showcase their products and services. We will have a short program followed by the opportunity for guests to stroll around the venue while sampling the featured cuisines. There will also be prizes and a silent auction with the potential to win Oakland A's skybox tickets (10), winery private tours and tastings, Southwest Airlines tickets, golf certificates, and passes to the Oakland Zoo. We are pleased to announce that Fabiola Kramsky-Gascón from Univision will be the emcee. Small Business Administration District Director Mark Quinn, Oakland City Councilman Noel Gallo, and representatives from Union Bank and U.S. Bank will each present an award to one of our entrepreneurs or volunteers.

Spotlighted entrepreneurs include Gloria Ramirez of Gloria's V Tailoring, Patricia Ramirez and Jaime Camacho of My Little Bunnies Daycare, Wondwossen Tadesse of Skyline Pizza and Han Phan of Kids Art Daycare. Owners of food businesses will cater the event with a wide array of cuisines.

We are proud to have the following fantastic sponsors supporting our event: Union Bank, the California Healthcare Foundation, US Bank, Heritage Bank, PG&E, ABC Security Services, Kaiser Permanente, Southwest Airlines, AT&T, BART, the Oakland Business Development Corporation (OBDC), the Unity Council, the Port of Oakland, the Community Housing Opportunities Corporation (CHOC), and the Greenlining Institute.

AnewAmerica provides training and technical assistance to targeted communities for economic and social empowerment through a focus on green entrepreneurship, asset building, social responsibility and civic engagement. As a result of the program, participants start businesses, create jobs, and contribute to the economic growth and social capital of their communities. The Microbusiness Expo provides a chance for these entrepreneurs to share their accomplishments with the wider world.​ Every dollar you contribute through your ticket purchase will go to support AnewAmerica's work with its clients.​​​​​
