Our History / What We Do

Our History

The Collin County Black Chamber of Commerce was founded by two African Americans, Mr. Keevin Dailey, and Mr. Jamal Murray. They saw the need in providing a forum for minority business to connect resources and opportunities in the Collin County area.

Collin County is one of the fastest growing counties in the State of Texas. This bustling part of North Texas has become an attractive home to numerous professional sports teams and an ever-growing list of corporate headquarters. More importantly, however, we are home to an estimated 1.2 million people who live and work from Allen, Frisco, Plano, McKinney and everywhere in between.

Since the county’s conception in the 1840’s, there has been no known Black Chamber of Commerce. CCBCC is proud to the FIRST Black Chamber in over 150 years!

Business Blueprint

The CCBCC Business Blueprint is a signature program designed by Entrepreneurs for Entrepreneurs because growing a small business is hard work, but not impossible! Entrepreneurs shouldn’t expect to simply start a business and become rich overnight. True Entrepreneurial success stems from major investments of time and energy.

The step by step program is designed to assist Entrepreneurs with the critical foundation to scale and catapult their business to the next level. There is an application process, zero financial costs to the participant, and each participant is required to attend a monthly, four-hour program that is facilitated by CCBCC Representatives and leading, top-notch business owners.

It is mandatory that each participant invest their time to attend the monthly sessions and complete the curriculum, surveys and assessments per program guidelines. In addition, the program delivers key information and tools to obtain certification as minority suppliers and provides the knowledge to work with government contractors.

CCBCC is dedicated to help Collin County Entrepreneurs grow, maintain and operate as very successful companies!

Business Match-Up Golf Challenge

The Collin County Black Chamber of Commerce Business Match-Up Golf Challenge is an opportunity to connect Chamber members to companies and other entities that could become clients. In addition, this event works to expand the reach of the Chamber, by inviting guests to spend the afternoon with our members and existing partners. Also, given that COVID has limited events and the ongoing economic challenges that all small business owners are facing, we want to create a venue to expedite the recovery of our business members by bringing potential clients to them. Beyond this year, the vision for this event is that it will become a mainstay calendar date for businesses that operate in Collin County.
