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.

The goal of the Minority Business Service Providers Collaborative is to fully leverage business development resources in a coordinated and efficient process to accelerate the growth of promising businesses. Click for details.
 

Middle-Market Programs

Through the GCP Middle Market Committee and our partnership with the National Center for the Middle Market at Ohio State’s Fisher College of Business, we’re helping drive value for Northeast Ohio mid-market companies and help this important market sector attract the attention it deserves.
