The Fort Wayne Black Chamber of Commerce serves as an advocate for the creation, growth and general welfare of black businesses in Fort Wayne community. The Chamber will actually promote the expansion of business opportunities on behalf of its membership through referrals, partnerships, seminars, technical assistance, and mentoring. The Chamber will focus on economic and business development, education and special projects.

The Fort Wayne Black Chamber of Commerce members are hosting business hours at the office and providing valuable information to new and emerging entrepreurs. See our events page to review the schedule details.
Your membership is a key component for success. It's the only way we can make a difference.

Our primary goals are to bring awareness of opportunities to the black business community, and to facilitate relationships to network and grow businesses.

Among ideas under discussion are workshops to teach people how to own a business, and how to stay in business, and how to help black-owned businesses learn how to do business with the government under programs that set contracts aside for business that are considered disadvantaged. Teaching entrepreneurship to the young is another idea.
