Black Entrepreneurs Gaining Momentum

2022-Manhattan-KS-Juneteenth-Freedom-Strength-Resilience

This year is no exception, as there are several events scheduled throughout the week. For more information and a list of the events, go check out their website here.

However, I want to focus on the aspects of this week's celebration related to business opportunity. We became aware of the Black Entrepreneurs of the Flint Hills a couple of years ago just after the organization got its start, and it's now grown to over 100 members.  

The Black Entrepreneurs of the Flint Hills have accomplished a great deal in a short period of time with limited resources. They achieved another milestone recently with the opening of new offices at 120 N. 4th Street, Suite K (Community House building). It is a great accomplishment from a group led by incredibly committed volunteers.

We believe true economic prosperity of a community comes through local business ownership and entrepreneurship. I can't think of anything more exciting than working to close racial wealth gaps through these endeavors. Please consider supporting these local businesses. For a listing of the Black Entrepreneurs of the Flint Hills businesses, please go to the organization's website.

Along those lines, the Chamber is working with the Black Entrepreneurs of the Flint Hillsand our economic development partners throughout the community on creating better access to capital including funds for minority and disadvantaged businesses. Look for more information soon.
