The MOBE Mission: To facilitate discussion, instruction, and business building relationships.

Since 1992, the MOBE Symposium has delivered business building, education, and mentoring resources for African-American professionals; sports, entertainment, and other entrepreneurs. MOBE facilitates deals between these companies and large corporations to grow their businesses.
