Minority Business Development

At GCP, we’re increasingly mindful that we’re all part of a regional community, an economic ecosystem. Through the Commission on Economic Inclusion, we’re working to ensure the full participation of minority individuals and companies in the region’s economic development agenda. 

A new collaboration of 11 Northeast Ohio business assistance organizations is launching an initiative to mutually identify and support promising minority business enterprises (MBEs) to stimulate job growth and economic development in the region.
