The TAACC was initially formed in response to several questions:

  • Who in the greater Toledo area consistently and systemically advocating on behalf of African American owned businesses in a coordinated way?
  • What organization(s) focuses on providing programming, and networking opportunities for African American owned businesses and challenges African American owned businesses to do better so they can achieve long term success?
  • Who is attempting to educate our Community on the importance of supporting African American owned businesses?

The answer to these questions was a resounding “no one does it all”.

The TAACC was formed to address these issues and fill a leadership void in the minority business community.
