The MMBC Continuum is an economic development agency in Memphis, Tenn., that developed a successful model focused on the growth of scalable minority and women-owned businesses with the capacity to meet the procurement needs of major corporations and impact job creation.
The seminars will introduce minority and women business owners to characteristics and the mindset necessary to position them for growth, while providing best practices that can help identify and determine how to leverage their existing strategy to grow to the next level by either enhancing or reengineering their approach to business.
The MMBC Continuum has formed a strategic partnership with LSBDC at ULM, which is the result of an investment made by the Delta Regional Authority (DRA) to support their initiative to impact the growth of minority and women-owned businesses in the DRA footprint.
The Delta Regional Authority is a federal-state partnership that is congressionally mandated to help create jobs, build communities and improve lives in the 252 counties and parishes of the Delta.
