The I Shop Black Business Development Center is committed to empowering small businesses by facilitating collaborative efforts and providing access to resources, funding, and support. Our platform offers a unique opportunity for small businesses to collaborate, share resources, and work together towards a common goal.

The ISBBDC is a dynamic platform that has several organizations working collaboratively to promote the growth and success of small businesses. Our center provides a range of services and resources that help businesses to thrive in their respective industries.

Through our experience working with various local, state, federal, and private institutions, we have identified that small business owners often lack the necessary resources to fulfill job requirements on their own. To address this issue, we have formed several organizations that offer a platform for separate entities to come together and gain access to more funding, resources, and support.

These organizations are designed to promote collaborative efforts between resource partners, which can lead to increased networking opportunities, joint ventures, and visibility. By aligning with other resource partners, small businesses can benefit from shared expertise, resources, and opportunities that may otherwise be out of reach.

Moreover, these organizations provide a platform for hosting large workshops, events, and programs without having to stretch one's resources singly. This is especially helpful for small businesses that may not have the bandwidth to organize and execute large-scale events on their own. The various organizations under the I Shop Black Business Development Center can collaborate to provide outstanding events and programs that are beneficial to all involved.

At the ISBBDC, our team works closely with these organizations to ensure that they have all the necessary resources and support to work together successfully. Our team provides guidance and assistance in navigating the complexities of collaborations, fund acquisition, and event planning to help organizations to thrive in their respective fields
