The Black Business Coalition of Williamson County will host its inaugural event, a virtual mixer via Zoom, on Tuesday, April 20.
“After months of planning, we are very excited to host the very first event of the Black Business Coalition of Williamson County,” said Tara Blue, co-chair of the Black Business Coalition. “We hope this will give local Black businesses a time to network and get to know one another,”
Operating under the umbrella of Williamson Inc.’s Inclusion and Diversity initiative, the Williamson County Black Business Coalition presents an opportunity for business and consumers across Williamson County to support Black-owned businesses who employ area residents and risk capital to start and grow their businesses.
The coalition exists to support Black business owners in Williamson County by providing them with networking opportunities, access to capital, minority contracting opportunities, professional development and visibility, including being listed on Williamson Inc.’s Black-owned business directory.
This new coalition is supported by the leadership of Williamson Inc., the Williamson County Convention and Visitors Bureau, and the city of Franklin.
