The Inaugural MWBE Community Engagement Awards recognized the many public, private, and corporate institutions that support and contribute to the success of our regional MWBE firms. The Inaugural MWBE Community Engagement Awards also recognized the many minority-owned companies that help fuel the region’s economy through their persistence, commitment, and dedication to increasing opportunities for all MWBE businesses.
Orange Soul Brunch
“Resources for Upstate Minority Owned Businesses,” was the inaugural, kickoff event for our Monthly UMEA Forum series.
These casual gatherings will consist of informational presentations about UMEA resources, goals and services, as well as brief moderated discussions that will enable us to collect input, requests and anecdotes from Latino, African American, Asian and Native American entrepreneurs about the obstacles and barriers to entry that have challenged their growth and expansion.
