MBAC Debuts Minority Business Banking Series

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — The Youngstown Business Incubator’s Minority Business Assistance Center (MBAC) is launching a Minority Business Banking series. The aim is to inform women and minority entrepreneurs about banking benefits and resources for minority businesses.

The series’ first session is set for 5-7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 10, at the Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County on Wick Ave. The event, in collaboration with PNC Bank and Valley Partners, marks National Financial Planning Month.

Attendees, especially women and minority business owners, are urged to engage with the speakers for insights as they venture into their business paths. Daniel Roberson, vice president of PNC Community Development Banking, will be among the initial speakers.

“The most important advice I can offer entrepreneurs is to develop a relationship with your banker,” Roberson said. “Working in a spirit of collaboration will help ensure that your banker understands the goals you have for your business and can provide you with realistic options that will help you achieve those goals.”

Valley Partners, aligned with MBAC at a Tier 1 status, focuses on assisting minority entrepreneurs in their business inception phase.

Attendees are asked to RSVP by October 1. Click HERE to register.
