The HOPE Inside Network: U.S. Minority Business Development Agency and Operation HOPE form new partnership for minority business enterprises

December, 2015


I was thrilled to join my friend Alejandra Y. Castillo, Director of the U.S. Minority Business Development Agency in Washington, D.C. at the U.S. Department of Commerce yesterday to sign a first ever national memorandum of agreement with the agency.  The partnership is focused on bringing more leadership attention, focus and organizational resources together to advance minority (and women) business ownership in this country.


The partnership will center itself, within our growing national HOPE Inside network, which positions itself as the nation's private banker to the working poor, working class and the struggling middle class.

Within this growing network of locations, we increasingly have a 'concierge experience' available to our clients within HOPE Inside locations, and now our alliance with MBDA adds to this.

Check out the full press release from the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement yesterday in Washington, DC with the Minority Business Development Agency here.  Honored to be associated.


We are building a powerful new constituency for the silver rights movement.

Let's go...
