About MEB

The Minority Entrepreneurs Association overall vision is to revolutionize the business field to reflect a diverse world and channel this entrepreneurial empowerment to fuel economic prosperity for disadvantaged communities. By providing education, guidance, and investment, we are building an international network of business leaders across the world to fuel this cycle of innovation. We will provide the means for every minority to turn their ideas into realities.

Background

For years minority entrepreneurs have been held back by disunity, lack of mentorship, diminished access to capital, and weak foundations. Now more than ever, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated these weaknesses and people are struggling to survive financially.
Through this struggle, we realized that there was no community directly devoted to facilitating minority businesses to flourish from inception. We wanted to do more than make money. We wanted to build leaders, teams, and communities, working together to execute a common vision that we are proud to stand by. As a result, a team of community focused Minority Entrepreneurs consisting of industry professionals, educators, investors, and students unified to start the namesake organization.

Objectives

Our main objectives are as follows:

  • Developing an Umbrella Organization for all minority businesses & professionals
  • Redefining Perspectives and Breaking Down Barriers for Minority Businesses
  • Blossoming budding entrepreneurs into business professionals through Accelerator Programs
  • Diversifying The Business World through the Creation of Minority Leaders
  • Training and Placing Ally Professionals in Job Opportunities
  • Developing Meaningful Solutions to Humanitarian Problems
  • Unifying Minorities to Fund Solutions for Underrepresented Communities
  • Aid Nonprofits Working to Help their Communities either Locally or Globally
  • Encourage and Provide Resources for Minorities to Start Businesses
  • Teaching Financial Literacy to Marginalized Communities
  • Providing Outreach Through A University Chapter Based Model of Learning
  • Inspiring the Youth To Contextualize Issues via Problem Based Approach to Learning
