Ohio Business Spotlight - February

Black History Month is a time to not only learn about our shared history, but to also highlight those who have overcome obstacles that can serve to inspire others in pursuing the American dream.

Recently, the Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky African American Chamber of Commerce announced that black owned businesses have an economic impact of more than $1.4 billion in the region and are responsible for directly employing 8,680 people. Ohio is bursting with resources to start and grow minority owned businesses, beginning with the Ohio Business Gateway on the Secretary of State’s website, and there are hundreds of examples of successful businesses throughout the state.
