Charlotte Business INClusion

Charlotte Business INClusion Home

The Charlotte Business INClusion (CBI) program seeks to enhance competition and participation of Minority, Women, and Small Business Enterprises (MWSBEs) in city contracting.

Leveraging the commitment of city leadership, CBI's goal is to be a national model in the business inclusion space. To accomplish this, all city departments have increasingly examined their procurements and set specific MWSBE participation goals on a contract-by-contract basis.

In addition, CBI makes a concerted effort to expand its certified MWSBE vendor pool and assist city-certified firms in growing, enhancing, and developing their businesses. CBI currently offers numerous development programs that support certified businesses in organizational training, strategic development, and networking opportunities.
