WHAT IS THE COLLIN COUNTY SMALL BUSINESS EXPO?
On August 18, 2016 the CCBCC will be hosting its second annual Collin County Small Business Expo for local business members. In our first year we attracted 300 attendees, in addition to 23 state and local agencies. We are looking to target minority and women owned businesses, and young entrepreneurs as well. Last year’s event was made a success thanks to the generous donations and support from community sponsors, and we hope to build on that success going into this year’s event.
The Expo will feature a panel of government agency representatives that will discuss resources available to help small businesses. In addition, we will have a women entreprenuer panel, a young entrepreneur panel, and presentations on crowdfunding and social media marketing. Come to visit with vendors and for one on one opportunties to speak directly with the HUB coordinators for various government agencies. It is sure to be an event that you will not want to miss.

When & Where
Collin County Black Chamber of Commerce
"To support and empower Black businesses within Collin County."
The mission of the Collin County Black Chamber of Commerce is to support and empower
Black businesses in Collin County. CCBCC therefore strives to empower, promote, and assist
entrepreneurship, capitalistic activity, and unity in the communities we serve.
CCBCC was originally founded by Mr. Keevin Dailey and Mr. Jamal Murray in 2006. This year we are
celebrating our 10th year anniversary serving the Collin County community. Mr. Dailey and Mr. Murray
saw the need in providing a forum for minority business to connect resources and opportunities in the
Collin County area and we continue to fulfill their original goals through our events, programs and
Collin County is one of the fastest growing counties in the State of Texas. This bustling part of North
Texas has become an attractive home to two professional sports teams and an ever-growing list of
corporate headquarters. More importantly, however, we're home to an estimated 914,127 people
who live and work from Plano to Frisco, McKinney to Murphy, and everywhere in between.
Since the county's conception in the 1840's, there has been no known Black Chamber of Commerce. CCBCC is proud to the FIRST Black Chamber in over 150 years!
