A business expo in Fort Lauderdale in April will offer minority entrepreneurs the chance to present their products and ideas to purchasing agents from large corporations and government agencies.

The event — hosted by the non-profit Southern Florida Minority Supplier Development Council — will take place April 14 and April 15 at the Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale.

Sponsors include Florida Blue, Office Depot, Baptist Health South Florida, Broward College and the Miami-Dade Expressway Authority.

Mike Fernandez, the South Florida entrepreneur who recently sold his healthcare company for an estimated $1 billion, will deliver a keynote address.
