The Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) Washington Business Center, in partnership with the Economic Development Board (EDB) for Tacoma-Pierce County, has launched Continued Acceleration, a program ensuring ongoing support of BIPOC-owned small businesses graduating from regional accelerator programs.

The program kicks off with events December 8th & 9th at the Union Club, a local co-working space for small business owners and entrepreneurs in Tacoma, with a BIPOC Business Executive Roundtable and a panel of business service providers.
