My business has been a client of the MBDC and has reaped the benefits of entrepreneurial start up assistance, coaching, and resources.  I was working on my own without any legal structure and the MBDC helped me set up my LLC, get my accounting in order, and set up back-office support.

I am a new business owner and I have worked closely with MBDC in the Entrepreneurial program to set up my LLC and to get one-on-one coaching to ensure that I started my business off right.  I have appreciated what was available at MBDC with my access to business experts and resources.  The Minority Business Development Center is a much-needed asset to the community and needs the support of funding organizations to ensure long-term success.

I own a medical supply business and support the local hospitals in Peoria County.  The MBDC helped me set up a commercial address and mailbox service so that my surgical instruments and supplies could be securely shipped and stored at their location.  They also assisted me in receiving a $10,000 grant from the City of Peoria.  I would not have been as successful in this industry without the help of the MBDC.
