The Ohio Development Services Agency (ODSA) Minority Business Development Division (MBDD) supports the growth and sustainability of Ohio's small, minority and disadvantaged businesses. Supporting these businesses means providing them with technical and professional assistance, access to capital and bonding, and connection to business opportunities through the Minority Business Assistance Centers. The Division leverages these resources to support achievement of the state's 15% MBE set aside goal.
The Division works with entrepreneurs and emerging business enterprises to help them achieve scale and market success. The overarching goal is to help small, minority and disadvantaged businesses contribute more fully to job creation and economic growth in Ohio.
