CenterState CEO is working with a group of minority community and business leaders to help them launch a Minority Chamber of Commerce within the CNY region (tentatively called the Minority Economic Alliance, or MEA).

The purpose of these maps is to demonstrate the existence of Minority and Women Owned Businesses (MWBE) in CNY and demonstrate the need for a network. Locating MWBE’s will help CenterState CEO identify clusters of MWBE’s in order to better understand the geographic targets for delivering programs and services. Additionally, the data and map will be used for reference in outreach and engagement efforts in building membership within the MEA.
