BBA is driven to transform the mindset of minority communities.  As the members are the organization’s top priority, BBA seeks to EMPOWER, GUIDE, PROMOTE, ENHANCE, COLLABORATE and GROW small and medium-sized black and minority businesses throughout Connecticut and nationally by addressing the gaps in business access to funding, educational resources and statewide capacity building. 

To do this, BBA’s goal is to penetrate deeply into the communities. BBA will focus on  cornerstone areas of focus: Trust, Customer, Quality, and Eco-system Commerce. These topics of concentration will address highest priorities within Black Community:
