Small, minority and women-owned businesses are vital to San Antonio’s economic health, to general business expansion and to the community at large. Nevertheless, at certain stages of development, these small businesses need the support of a knowledgeable team.

That’s why we created the Business Empowerment Plan. This plan provides growing businesses access to people and organizations that are ready to help:

 The Business Empowerment Plan is structured in two phases. Phase I is the Small Business Education Boot Camp. Phase II consists of two programs – the Mentor Protégé Program and the Bonding Assistance Program. These programs bring together the best of business development organizations, professionals and business community members to help small businesses build capacity and make a big impact on south Texas.
