The 400-member chamber has been selected for the U.S. Small Business Administration's Community Navigator Program as a spoke, a 100 million outreach effort to firm that are in underserved communities and have been adversely impacted by the Covid-19 crises.
A theme of MED Week was that Minority entrepreneurs can benefit from increased commitment of the federal and state governments to award contracts to them, but only if they first have a strong, well-organized operation, officials said at the conference. The ultimate goal for MED Week is to expand MED Week into MED Month in 2023.
As part of Minority Enterprise Development Week, a second event was held by the Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce, Inc along with the African American Small Business Foundation, Inc. and with Hofstra's Entrepreneurship Assistance Center at The Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship Scott Skodnek Business Development Center.
In October of 2022 the Long Island African American Chamber of Commerce, Inc. and the African American Small Business Foundation, Inc. launched the Inaugural Minority Enterprise Development Week on Long Island which will be Minority Enterprise Development Month beginning in October of 2023 and beyond.
Minority Enterprise Development Month (MED Month) Offers a venue for minority-owned firms to access information, tools, and resources to grow their businesses both domestically and internationally through networking events, workshops, and issue forums.
The events that compose MED Month are meant to raise awareness among minority business owners, and the larger business community.
The workshops included a session for start-ups, procurement, and access to capital.
