Minority Business Council

The Minority Business Council of Jefferson City, although affiliated with the Chamber, will require numerous public and private sector partners in order to succeed.  There will be no requirement that a participating company or nonprofit organization be a Chamber member. The Minority Business Council will be self-governed by its own membership, including the selection of leadership within the group and the establishment of programs to accomplish their mission.

Mission: is to help minority businesses grow and prosper.

Purpose: to help minority businesses certify, help to develop strategic plans, connect to available resources, educate to empower, and advocate for opportunities for them to grow and prosper.

The members of a Minority Business Council will ultimately establish its own priorities, but it’s anticipated that programming could include:

  • Dynamic business educational sessions,
  • Networking events and connections to resources,
  • Access to capital and competitive funding opportunities, and
  • Mentoring programs.
