For more than a decade, the GBC has been recognizing, through its Bridging the Gap Awards, exceptional minority and women-owned businesses and majority businesses and executives who nurture the development of minority businesses in Greater Baltimore and Maryland.

The GBC’s Bridging the Gap initiative works to advance greater Baltimore’s business culture by creating an atmosphere for majority and minority and women-owned businesses to succeed and form mutually-beneficial partnerships. The Bridging the Gap initiative strives to equip businesses with the tools and support to develop such collaborations.

Bridging the Gap works to:

  • Nurture the creation of legacy wealth among minority and women-owned businesses.

  • Provide training opportunities and a match program that enhance capabilities within the minority and women-owned business community to enable successful participation in partnership opportunities.
