Business Collaborative Presents
Cincinnati is the fastest growing economic power in the Midwestern United States. We rank in the top 10 of the largest 50 U.S. Metropolitan areas where minorities are finding success, according to a LendingTree report.
We’re a region where you can make a big impact, and the Cincinnati Minority Business Collaborative (CMBC) looks forward to making the next decade the most impactful yet as the best place to start, grow, or find resources for your minority business.
We understand that launching your business into the next phase takes a giant leap of faith and access to critical resources.
Building a business is personal. It takes courage, focus, opportunity, and connection to funds and mentorship. That’s the support that the CMBC provides and why we’re honored to share our “Building a Business Enterprise” minority business spotlight showcasing the stories of twelve of the minority businesses in our network who embody the entrepreneurial spirit.
Learn their stories and support them as they continue to make the Cincinnati region an epicenter of minority business success.
