The Oklahoma City Black Chamber of Commerce is a private, non-profit business and individual partnership organization. Formally known as the Capitol Chamber of Commerce, the chamber was incorporated in May 1989. In November 2011, the Capitol Chamber of Commerce changed its name and rebranded as the Oklahoma City Black Chamber. What followed was a refocused initiative to truly becoming the catalyst of support for economic growth in Northeast Oklahoma City and beyond. From small business training, educational programming, leadership development, and young professional engagement, the Oklahoma City Black Chamber of Commerce has set its Mission/Vision to build, champion, and serve the communities in Central Oklahoma.
The Oklahoma City Black Chamber is collective group of progressive minded organizations and citizens who invest their time, energy, and financial resources for the benefit of unified community development. Our goal is to market the greater Oklahoma City metro, attracting new growth, while providing sound advocacy for minority businesses and individuals. Though we have a strong focus on improving the wealth and development of Northeast, Oklahoma City, we are not bound by geographical location and are proud to service all of the metro and even several communities outside of Oklahoma County lines.
We are partnership driven, dedicated to the needs community, and ground zero for improving the perception and opportunities for the black community in Oklahoma City. We assist existing and expanding businesses, help guide aspiring entrepreneurs, and work to build economic development for new employment and investment growth. We accomplish this by continuing to build on a foundation of community involvement and business relations. Oklahoma City Black Chamber’s ultimate goal is to have true partners who share our passion for improving the structure of the community. Providing opportunities to network and invest in knowledge continues to be a staple of the benefits we provide. This includes training in the areas of small business and entrepreneurship, financial literacy, community engagement, and legislative advocacy.
Our Mission is to create, promote, and increase economic growth for black communities in the Oklahoma City area through leadership, support and collaboration with current and potential partners (both individuals and businesses).
Our vision is to be the primary advocate for our partners and act as a catalyst to support economic growth and development for black communities in the Oklahoma City area.
As we continue to shine a light on those businesses that have a common goal of education and wealth, the Chamber will continue to be a resource and the main “go-to” point of contact for our partners and those who want to do business with our partners.
