The MBAC and Division works with entrepreneurs, and emerging business enterprises to help them achieve, scale, and market success. The overarching goal is to help small, minority-owned, and disadvantaged businesses contribute to job creation and economic growth in Ohio.  Contact the Minority Business Assistance Center (MBAC) to schedule an appointment and meet with a Certified Business Advisor.
