Welcome

First Coast Business Alliance Inc. (FCBA) is a 100% volunteer-based, community and neighborhood development organization in Jacksonville, Florida.  FCBA collaborates with many government agencies, small, and large businesses within the First Coast of Florida to assist minority businesses in building successful businesses.

Each year, FCBA and local sponsors host Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week Breakfast, Youth Entrepreneur Summit, and Award Luncheon for the Northeast Metropolitan region of Florida. MEDWeek is a joint collaboration of the U.S. Department of Commerce's Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA).  This year marks the 35th Annual MEDWeek celebration with the theme of "I3 Ignite, Incite, Innovate: Building A Legacy for Business". 

During MED Week, advocacy groups and government partners join with the local business community to celebrate local minority businesses and the contributions they make to our local economy. The MED Week schedule of events offers attendees valuable opportunities to network, and develops professional skills and partnerships.

This year’s MED Week will be during the week of November 5th to 8th, 2018. To start on the right path, the Celebration Breakfast brings the government updates from the State level on Minority and Small Business Enterprises to our local businesses. To groom our next generation of entrepreneurs, FCBA hosts an Annual Youth Entrepreneur Summit with over 100 high school students from 5-6 different local high schools to gather and participate in a one-day, high level training session on entrepreneurship. The close the week, the MED Week Awards Luncheon showcases the outstanding minority-owned businesses in the Northeast of Florida by recognizing the 2018 Small Business Award Winners.  For details of the events, go to the Events page.
