DEBCC’s Vision, Mission and Purpose

The vision of the DEBCC is to serve the needs of Black owned businesses and provide economic opportunity and support to them as well as the communities they serve. We strive to leave our footprint in the sand of Delaware’s business landscape and forge a path that leads to a steady flow of resources beneficial to our business members through relationships, partnerships and apprenticeships.
Our mission is to support the initiatives of Black business owners and foster an enterprise that focuses on success and viability. We endeavor to create awareness and visibility of our efforts at local, state, and federal levels through advocacy. We strive to provide access to education and training that keeps Black business owners in step with the ever changing requirements of Delaware’s economic playing field.
Our purpose is to strengthen our role as a vital hub for connecting Black business owners and entrepreneurs with the resources needed to assist them in growing their enterprise and creating new economic opportunities and job growth all throughout the First State.

Our Team

Our mutual goal is to enable Black businesses to compete in Delaware. DEBCC works to ensure that minority and other disadvantaged entrepreneurs are not left behind due to unfair assumptions and a lack of effort to help them achieve success. Together, we can provide the necessary assistance and support system and instill a sense of pride in the Black business community.

Remember to ALWAYS bet on yourself. Let your hard work speak for itself. There will always be naysayers, critics with no credentials and folks that think they can do what you do – block the noise and stay focus.
