Watch Now: Why Minority Business Development?

The Minority Business Empowerment Team

The Minority Business Empowerment Team (MBET) is a grassroots collaborative effort between local minority-owned businesses, economic development organizations – ECEDC (an affiliate of the Greater Sandusky Partnership) & RISE, the City of Sandusky, and Sandusky City Schools.  

MBET’s mission is to champion minority business development through collective and intentional entrepreneur support that improves the economic, social, and personal standing for all minority entrepreneurs in the Greater Sandusky Area. Since coming together in 2020, the group has used networking events and social media to build community and increase visibility of local minority entrepreneurs and have delivered business and financial assistance to minority-owned businesses.
