Where commerce meets social justice

MWBE Business Resources

The New York State Division of Minority and Women’s Business Development has a variety of resources that are worth exploring.

Their mission is to promote equality of economic opportunities for “minority and women’s business development”, which basically means they help people get connected with state contracts.

On their website you can get resources and information on how to get contracts.

But it’s not always that easy to navigate the details of state contracts – so if you have any questions please reach out to gladys@businessleadersofcolors.com

Here are some docs about the program.

About Gladys Brangman

Gladys is at her best when serving others and has set out to make the small business world more profitable by providing access to educational services and networking opportunities. Her most recent venture is Business Leaders of Colors (BLOC) a local network designed to support small business owners. She believes that if business owners of color(s) are going to thrive they needed to have access to funding, education. A gathering to celebrate Black History Month four years ago, transformed into a network that became a business created to serve the under represented members of the small business community. BLOC offers reduced cost business and financial training, marketing, and a web presence for businesses that do not have one.
