What WE Do

The Black Business Association of Memphis (BBA)

is missioned to improve the economic well-being of the Memphis region by developing successful entrepreneurs and MWBEs through education, advocacy, and business development. Creating and implementing innovative and strategic programs to propel MWBEs toward economic opportunities for growth and prosperity is paramount.

















Memphis ReStart is a multi-facet initiative launched by
the Black Business Association of Memphis to focus on three areas:
Talent, Acquisitions, and Talent Connections.

The Memphis Restart Initiative is a program designed to empower Black individuals to achieve economic mobility and secure a brighter future. Our program helps people acquire valuable business skills and make meaningful connections, so they can find suitable executive opportunities and establish their own businesses. With the Memphis Restart Initiative, it’s easier than ever for Black individuals to reach their goals and make a real difference.
