Recently we had the pleasure of joining Xavier University for the media launch of the Minority Business Enterprise Disaster Readiness Project. The project, which is backed by the U.S. Department of Commerce, is designed to assist Minority Business Enterprises (MBE), as well as other businesses, in gaining access to information on obtaining access to contracts in the aftermath of disasters. These contracts are provided by the Federal Government and other public agencies.

This project represents a huge opportunity for our local businesses, by eliminating many obstacles. In the past, MBE’s have not been able to get the information or access to valuable contracts, that can make a huge difference to the success of their business.
