Who We Are
The Illinois State Black Chamber of Commerce (ILBCC) is a dynamic and influential organization committed to creating a more inclusive and prosperous Illinois. We champion the interests of Black-owned businesses, women entrepreneurs, and minority-owned enterprises. With over two decades of experience, we’ve been at the forefront of advocating for economic equality and growth.
Our mission of the Illinois State Black Chamber of Commerce (ILBCC) is simple. We help small businesses access success by developing strategies to assist them in increasing their competitive ability and capacity. Since our inception, we have seen steady growth and have worked with businesses and government agencies alike to help craft solutions in areas that directly help reduce economic disparity for our citizens and communities. For more than 22 years, we have operated at the highest levels in public and private sectors to help create sustainable opportunities for African Americans, women, and minority-owned businesses alike. We advocate for the over 100,000 black-owned businesses that represent an extremely diverse slice of industries from all across Illinois.
Our vision is to help Illinois black businesses become sustainable, high-growth enterprises by assisting them with building their capacity, and allowing them to compete effectively in local, state, federal, and commercial contracts.
