Martindale Brightwood CDC is intentional about offering programming that addresses the gaps with small business owners in our community. We work with community partners and industry leaders to provide training, education, and technical assistance that empowers participants in the conception to reality phases. 

During our annual Money Smart for Small Business series in partnership with the SBA, participants learn tools to help start, grow, and sustain their businesses. Topics include accounting, banking services, tax planning, minority certifications, and more. Our series ends with a pitch competition with the opportunity to win business capital. MBCDC also offers single-day sessions on relevant topics.   

New to MBCDC, we are now offering programming to assist business owners with the City and State Minority Business Enterprise certification applications and how to submit Request for Proposals (RFP). Participants finish the series with business templates to use for the application, a network of professional contractors, and the mindset and confidence to compete for government contracts.
