The Indiana Economic Development Center strives to help entrepreneurs thrive in our state, and David Watkins — VP of Small Business for the IEDC — saw that many business owners from a minority background needed assistance on things like getting MBE certified and contracting opportunities.
In September, the IEDC was awarded a grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce Minority Business Development Agency. This grant will help the IEDC open a Minority Business Development center.
The center will strive to help provide minority business owners growth opportunities and resource navigation.
