City leaders say minority business owners make up half of the businesses in Tampa, but bring in less than five percent of the county's revenue. The Tampa Chamber's Minority Business Accelerator Program is giving business owners the tools they need to grow and bring more revenue to the region, and the effort is already stimulating growth in the local economy. The program started with its inaugural cohort group in January. "It's really about starting with the minority business community and who is oftentimes underserved or underrepresented and giving them the resources to really be key players and drive our economy forward," said LaKendria Robinson, Director of Minority Business Accelerator and Economic Inclusion.
