The Columbus Minority Business Assistance Center


Through its two offices in Columbus and Athens, the Columbus Minority Business Assistance Center (MBAC) provides management, technical and professional assistance, access to capital, surety bonding, connection to business opportunities and assistance with MBE/EDGE/WBE/VFBE Certification.

MBAC aims to connect entrepreneurs and emerging business owners to the resources, opportunities, and contract procurement information to help them achieve, scale, and market success.

With the support of the Ohio Department of Development’s Minority Business Division, MBAC offices offer free assistance to minorities, women, and small disadvantaged businesses in 18 Ohio counties, including Athens, Coshocton, Delaware, Fairfield, Franklin, Guernsey, Hocking, Licking, Knox, Marion, Morgan, Morrow, Muskingum, Noble, Perry, Pickaway, Union and Washington — see full map here.
