Welcome to the ILBCC
The Illinois State Black Chamber of Commerce mission is simple. We exist to empower Black enterprises in order to strengthen Black communities. For over twenty years, we have operated with the highest integrity at the highest levels of public and private sectors in order to help create sustainable opportunities for Black, women, and minority owned businesses alike. Crafting solutions that directly help reduce economic disparities that impact our communities is what we do and we’re proud to advocate for the over 144,000 Black owned businesses that represent an extremely diverse slice of industries from all across Illinois!
Our vision is to see all Black businesses in Illinois become sustainable, high-growth enterprises by assisting with building their capacity to compete effectively for local, state and federal commercial contracting.
