The Minority Business Network (MBN), as a committee of the West Hartford Chamber of Commerce, was conceived as a means of providing visibility, networking opportunities and resources to Chamber members who are also members of underrepresented racial/ethnic/religious populations. All members should approach participation with a willingness to help achieve the stated objectives of the committee.
Our mission is to help connect our members with opportunities, connections and resources.
We're looking to;
- Increase visibility of minority owned businesses
- Provide a discussion forum for the unique challenges faced by minority professionals
- Increase diversity of Chamber membership

We are coming to the table with a positive attitude and constructive feedback. We look forward to helping!
We are coming at this from a purely positive standpoint, we want our businesses to improve and any criticism is in that spirit.
We would like to cultivate a group that is friendly, growth-oriented, and willing to share information.
These questions are designed to have a more pointed look at the businesses we work with, this way we can review the questions and determine a direction for the Mastermind session.
We're looking to connect with Minority Owned/Represented businesses that we might be able to help work through specific challenges!
