Black Business Alliance (BBA)

BBA will conduct an assessment and use a systematic process for determining a business’ needs. BBA technical counselors have extensive financial and business acumen (over 30 years) to close these gaps quickly. BBA understands that many business owners are great at their craft or trade, but sometimes haven’t had the chance to learn financial statements or other administrative skills that are usually needed to seek funding from lending institutions.
