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.
The Toledo African American Chamber of Commerce operates at the intersection of business, economic development, and public policy, and thrives to realize the 4 key objectives: B2B Engagement, Advocacy, Education, Development and Training, and Industry Promotion
