  • Minority Business Network

    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!
