Understanding the State of Illinois’ Black Business Survey

July 20, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Presented in partnership with The City of Champaign, The City of Urbana, Campus-Community Compact To Accelerate Social Justice, and Champaign Community Coalition – Walk As One

In February 2023, the IL Office of Minority Economic Empowerment (OMEE) released results of its black business survey. This first-of-its-kind statewide Black Business Survey solicited information directly from black-owned businesses to provide empirical context to better understand the unique challenges facing lack-owned businesses across the state.

Matt Simpson from the IL OMEE office will present the findings of the survey and share important insights to supporting both black business development and overall economic growth. Entrepreneurs who attend will be able to network with one another and take advantage of business resource organizations that will be in attendance.
