Big Bend Minority Chamber of Commerce Launches its Young Entrepreneurs Council

Tallahassee, Florida- The Big Bend Minority Chamber of Commerce (BBMC) is proud to announce the success of its Young Entrepreneurs Council (YEC) launch this past Thursday June, 20th at the Aloft Hotel. The YEC launch gave numerous young businessmen and women in the Tallahassee area the opportunity to join the BBMC and align themselves with its mission. YEC Chairman Phillip Singleton remarked, “It is exciting to see so many young business professionals respond positively to our initiatives. We look forward to aiding their progression and finding solutions to their problems.”

Under the BBMC umbrella the YEC aims to provide the opportunity for entrepreneurs to convene and network, share ideas, insight, and to build a community mutually beneficial to everyone involved. To accomplish this, the YEC serves as an incubator to these young minority business professionals by connecting them with other like-minded, forward thinking professionals who are vital, available and willing to cultivate their talents.

The programs and councils of the BBMC help to initiate this approach with various events and workshops in the community. The President of the BBMC Windell Paige remarked, “We are excited about the inclusion of some of the Big Bend region’s most dynamic up and coming entrepreneurs in the BBMC, and we hope to be able to create a measurable, positive contribution to their growth and development.”

Firm in its resolve to benefit the community, all proceeds from the event went to the Boy’s Choir of Tallahassee a community based outreach program with a mission to foster academic excellence, build character and self esteem, develop interpersonal skills and help young men realize their fullest potential while acquiring life skills.
