From its geographical location to the quality talent, favorable business taxes and a number of other desirable elements, the city has become a thriving business center.

A thriving center for minority business owners

For a city to thrive, it needs businesses and business owners from all walks of life. 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.
