SAN RAFAEL, Calif. - Jan. 20, 2023 - PRLog -- Marin, Sonoma, Napa and Solano SBDC Centers are proud to announce the launch of the Inclusivity Project, a program to serve Black and African American businesses in their counties. During the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, it was reported that 41% of Black and African American businesses closed their doors throughout the United States. The SBDCs are committed to helping build back Black & African American businesses in the North Bay and across the region.

The Inclusivity Project is a collaboration between the North Bay SBDC centers, the North Bay Black Chamber and the Solano County Black Chamber of Commerce with a goal of creating meaningful change within the black business community.

The project is being funded by Wells Fargo Bank and is open to all new and existing Black and African American entrepreneurs.  The program offers no cost, in-depth business training and expert one to one advising to help members realize their business potential, prepare for sustainable business ownership and create generational wealth.

The North Bay SBDCs are appreciative to be a strategic partner to provide leadership, mentorship, and financial resources while creating meaningful community engagement and stakeholder thinking. Each SBDC center has dedicated Black and African American advisors that have years of experience helping businesses achieve their goals.  Margaret Jackson, Lead Business IP Advisor and Instructor, "We are a team of like-minded small business professional experts desiring to achieve a common goal: to restore the 41% loss in this Nation by supporting our next generation of aspiring Black and African American business owners and entrepreneurs. I'm honored to be part of this project and work alongside these talented business owners to achieve their goals."
