About Riverside County Black Chamber of Commerce
The Riverside County Black Chamber of Commerce (RCBCC’s) mission is to empower and inspire minority entrepreneurs. They believe that the greatest opportunity to empower and inspire minority communities and businesses lies in cooperation and collaboration with the industries of tomorrow.
RCBCC takes a ‛Holistic’ approach to issues that are at the heart of smart business strategies for the minority small business owner.
“Our holistic approach of how we operate RCBCC programs is both specific and inclusive,” said Pepi Jackson, RCBCC President. “We specifically reach out to the minority business community, and we also include the economic development of the community surrounding those minority businesses. In our view, we understand that an entrepreneur can have the best business model in the state, but if that community in which it has decided to serve does not have a solid economic base which can use its discretionary income to patronize that business, than that business will fail. Therefore, the chamber’s holistic strategy is to foster employment opportunities surrounding the minority businesses in the minority communities.” Visit http://www.riversidecountbcc.org and find them on facebook @riversidecountyblackchamber.
