The Center for Minority Business Development (CMBD) provides local minority business leaders with the ancillary skills and political business insight needed to build successful enterprises. Established through a $5 million grant from The Peterson Companies, the CMBD is designed to help minority enterprises in Maryland’s Prince George’s County build the capacity to compete. We aim to narrow the participation gap between minority and non-minority owned businesses in the County by providing Local Minority Business Enterprise (LMBE) leaders with access to relevant educational programs, business development and assessment tools, counseling, and mentoring programs that facilitate sustainable growth.
