Resources for Minority Business Owners


Historically considered a disenfranchised group, minorities are making their way into the backbone of American businesses, nearly doubling in the last decade. Government-sponsored programs, NPOs, and privately-backed programs are offering assistance in the form of knowledge, resources, grants, and programs. We strongly encourage any minority-owned business to take advantage of the following resources in order to establish, grow, or promote their company:


Small Business Administration (SBA)

US Department of Commerce (USDC)

National Minority Supplier Development Council
