A thriving center for minority business owners

To help minorities thrive, the city offers resources, grants and loans not found in other states (or even in other cities around Tennessee). This has resulted in Memphis becoming the top city for black-owned businesses, according to both HuffPost and Fast Company and reported by Commercial Appeal.
