Minority Owned Business
Based on strongly supported statistics, across the country minority business owners’ account for more than 4.1 million firms and generate approximately $700 billion dollars annually. Besides bringing in so much money, minority owned businesses also employ over 7 million individuals. If you are wondering whether you qualify as a minority owned business, to be considered in this category, the business must be owned, operated and controlled specifically by a minority group member as well as being a for-profit company.
