We're not about business as usual. We call the movement to transform each individual's personal/professional development and every business from GOOD to GREAT! Business Convention and Expo of the Deaf provides education, empowerment also stimulates a collaborative culture of new thinking, possible opportunities, and unconventional ideas.
We believe that the creation of mutually supportive community who invests in the future of our Deaf and Hard of Hearing society and act as a catalyst of positive impact is the key of business and personal/professional growth.
When Deaf co-founders V. Kotenev, J. Clark, and V. Pavlyukovets made this observation many years ago, they were defining how they viewed the endless possibilities in small business and entrepreneurship development for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. They experienced repetitive discrimination with equal communication access and special accommodation at public business events even they were paid and registered.
It started with a handshake between three visionary Deaf entrepreneurs. They and the people they evolved the Business Convention and Expo of the Deaf that became most useful and annual learning business event with an equal access in American Sign Language for Deaf and Hard of Hearing professionals, business school students, future small business owners, current business owners and entrepreneurs.
IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING!
