All proceeds from the Black Business Month Celebration will go towards our Technical Assistance Program.
It is heartening to see that Tallahassee is taking proactive steps to empower its black business community. By providing them with the necessary resources, the Chamber is helping to level the playing field and ensure that these entrepreneurs have a fair shot at success.
Here are a few ways that Tallahassee is supporting its black-owned businesses:
Providing access to capital: One of the biggest hurdles black business owners face is a lack of access to capital. Tallahassee is working to address this by providing grants and loans to help these entrepreneurs get their businesses off the ground.
Offering mentorship and training: Starting a business can be daunting, especially for those who have never done it . The city is working to provide mentorship and training programs to help black business owners develop the skills they need to succeed.
Creating networking opportunities: Building a network of contacts is essential for any business owner. Tallahassee is working to connect black business owners with opportunites, as well as with potential customers and partners.
By providing these resources and support systems, Tallahassee is helping to ensure that its black business community continues to thrive and grow.
