Located on The University of Toledo (UT) Campus of Energy and Innovation, The University of Toledo Minority Business Development Center (MBDC) provides an ideal environment to help a selected number of established minority owned businesses to grow.
This growth is good for our community, the region, and even the global business stage. This is one of the many diversity initiatives led by the Office of Equity, Diversity and Community Engagement.
Working in partnership with local, community-based business professionals, the UTMBDC provides information, essential services, networking resources and more to assist early-stage companies. The UTMBDC helps entrepreneurs turn their ideas into viable businesses, promoting innovation and creating jobs. This strengthens the economic fibers of the community, benefiting everyone.
The UTMBDC is not intended to replicate existing services available to businesses or organizations, but to complement these services through a focus on minority-owned companies.
