Build Back - Dream Forward: Strengthening Minority-Owned Businesses in Northern Virginia

Jun 23, 2021 8:30 AM
Northern Virginia is home to approximately 128,000 minority-owned businesses, over 40 percent of all establishments operating in the region. As all businesses work to rebuild after the recent pandemic, this community of business owners will face a number of unique challenges. What do they need, why do they need it, and how can we help them? A cross-sector collaboration of seven local organizations recently emerged to address these very questions, forming the Northern Virginia Minority-Owned Businesses Working Group. Their upcoming report offers key findings and concrete recommendations for an equitable recovery across our region.
Join us to explore the data they uncovered.
