Ayanna Khan, Founder, President and CEO of The Delaware Black Chamber of Commerce returned to give us an update on the three year old chamber, which was honored as Best Chamber of the Year for 2023 for its impact and commitment to empowering Black businesses.  Like other business chambers DEBCC offers a hub for connecting Black owners and entrepreneurs with education and training, grants and other funding sources, and entre to opportunities within the state and surrounding areas.  She works to ensure that Black, minority and other disadvantaged entrepreneurs are not left behind due to lack of knowledge of processes or access to capital and decision makers.  The chamber offers help with staffing, insurance and healthcare issues these businesses face.  She is proud that, thanks to their advocacy, the state now does demographic tracking on businesses, identifying Black, woman and minority ownership, making it easier to track both success and also deficiencies in opportunities.

She discussed the benefits of belonging, beyond the business support, the Chamber offers social and other networking opportunities throughout the year creating a forum to share best practices, create partnerships and support new endeavors.
