As one of America’s largest cities, Virginia Beach understands the greatness obtained from embracing a diversity of people and business. By creating a dynamic framework where new ideas lend with the existing environment, we can ensure a sustainable and successful future. Part of that frame work includes having a business community that represents all of the community. We are proud Virginia Beach is home to more than 30% of all women and minority–owned companies in our area, not to mention numerous companies from around the world who can help your business connect globally.
The Virginia Beach Department of Economic Development established a formal Minority Business Development Program in April 2007.
