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.
NVRC is pleased to partner with the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia and the economic development agencies in the region on this report. Please join us to explore the data they uncovered at a free webinar to be held on June 23 at 8:30 AM via Zoom.
