A Minority Business Development Framework for the Cleveland Foundation
Publication Date: August 2005
The purpose of this report is to provide information to assist The Cleveland Foundation in developing its minority business development approach, with an emphasis on supporting the growth and health of established and mid-level businesses. Through this report we provide an assessment of the current local minority business status and identify promising focus areas for the Foundation as it moves ahead. It is important to note that this report is not a prescription for revitalizing inner city neighborhoods or distressed inner suburbs. There are many other factors beside minority business development that contribute to neighborhood vitality.
