The Minority Business Partnership (MBP) strategically focuses on two specific areas for Building Inclusion Capacity and Creating Connections in our region. The outcomes of these two areas are the source for creating a tangible return on investment to the community. The operative term is FOCUS. Specifically who are the buying organizations and who are the sizable minority suppliers?
These two strategy areas focus on a subgroup of the Dayton Region. This subgroup of approximately 20 committed buying organizations and 40 minority owned firms represents the group most likely to create true economic outcomes. The buying organizations will be referred to as Committed Buying Organization (CBO) and the minority owned businesses will be called the Focused 40. It is important not to become fixated on the exact numbers in either case. The focus is best placed on the profile of the groups and the activities creating the results the region desires. Whatever the exact numbers, these two groups are the most ready to engage in doing business together, creating jobs, and embracing inclusionary practices.
