The Minority Business Pandemic Recovery Academy is a transformational executive education program.
In response to the crisis facing minority-owned businesses due to COVID-19, the Capital Region Minority Supplier Development Council, operator of the U.S. Department of Commerce, Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA), Virginia Business Center created an academy to address the challenges.
Each week participating minority-owned firms experienced virtual sessions focusing on targeted topics, accompanied by a subject matter expert to provide practical, real-world experience as MBEs continue to deal with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our inaugural class was in partnership with The University of Maryland Global Campus (UMGC) and our most recent cohort was in partnership with Virginia State University (VSU). To date we have advanced and graduated over 80 MBE CEO’s through this program.
