Minority Business Resource Collaborative

The Minority Business Resource Collaborative exists among approximately a dozen primary organizations engaged in providing support to minority businesses in Upstate SC. The Collaborative is not a new organization, but a new way for existing organizations to work more effectively together. The purpose of the Collaborative is to maximize the collective capability to positively impact the growth, development and success of minority firms in the upstate. The Collaborative’s objectives are to systematically support more minority businesses and produce better outcomes in the areas of economic development, minority business growth, job creation and wealth creation. The Collaborative will leverage the existing infrastructure of the respective organizations into a collective “system” designed to support more businesses in ways that are tangible to their needs and meaningful to their long-term growth and development.
