Goal Setter Companies

Corporate Goal Setters help create jobs and grow the vibrancy and economic prosperity in our region through their collective commitment to minority spending.

Principles of the Minority Business Accelerator

The Accelerator is an extension of your team and aims to help you meet your Diversity & Inclusion goals.
  • The Accelerator will define the continuum of Goal Setter minority business enterprise (MBE) capabilities - from starting points to the gold standard of capabilities - and will meet you where you currently are on the spectrum.
  • The Accelerator will help you grow your MBE capabilities.
  • To help your company meet its purchasing needs, the Accelerator will connect you with our MBE Portfolio firms. If you need additional assistance beyond our portfolio, the Accelerator researches and provides additional MBE options.
  • The Accelerator confidentially gathers information to enable deal flow of mainstream and MBE businesses for sale - and to provide deal-backing financial partners (banking partners, local minority capital).
