Bexar County Small Business & Entrepreneurship Department
African-American Business Enterprise Initiative
Bexar County’s UTSA AABE Survey most recently identified a gap in availability and capacity of African American owned businesses in the Alamo region. Because of the survey recommendations, the County’s Small Business and Entrepreneurship Department has created the African American Business Enterprise Initiative (AABEI) to help stimulate local outreach, economic growth, and development.
The Bexar County Acceleration Connection is designed to serve AABEs in Bexar County and surrounding areas. It provides information on starting and growing your business, working with Bexar County, discovering AABEs, as well as the UTSA AABE Survey and recommendations. The SBED strives to increase small, minority, and women-owned business participation in Bexar County projects and procurements through the integration of public, non-profit, and private sector efforts and resources.
