Minority Business Development

Always Doing.

Spartanburg is a city that doesn't just create goals, but achieves them. Doesn't just house businesses, but advances them. We are doing more because we were raised to do nothing less. That's why Spartanburg is always doing. 

The City of Spartanburg's Minority Business Development department seeks to identify minority and women-owned businesses for an opportunity to participate as providers of goods and services to the city, enhance competition and participation to promote economic growth and development in the City of Spartanburg.

Minority, Women, and Small Business Enterprises (MWBEs) are major contributors to our state and local economies. The success of our MWBEs is essential to providing jobs, promoting economic growth, diversifying our economy, and reaching our goals as a City.
