ABOUT US

ELEVATING BLACK BUSINESSES, IGNITING ECONOMIC GROWTH.

The BCBCC is a membership organization dedicated to offering products, services, and educational programming for multi-cultural business owners and professionals within the Beaufort and neighboring communities.  The individuals and businesses we serve are federally recognized as disadvantaged business enterprises and/or denied access to capital in traditional finance markets.

YOUR BUSINESS. OUR COMMUNITY. OUR FUTURE.

We have come a long way since our founding in 1999. Starting from an idea, about $5,000 and a handful of members, the BCBCC has grown into a multi-million dollar organization that that is changing the face of Beaufort County. Click below to find out how we can help you!
