For many years, small, minority-owned, and woman-owned businesses (S/MWBEs) around the U.S. have helped us grow as a nation. Just look at some of your favorite stores like Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, and Walmart. All four of these large corporations started as small businesses and worked their way to the top. Today small businesses face unique challenges, but continue to play a vital role in building our nation’s economy. The Port Houston Business Equity team knows this, and their program is designed to help S/MWBEs thrive in this country. Port Houston is honored to recognize and work with more than 1,400 S/MWBEs across the Greater Houston region.
Opportunity plus Preparation equals Success. Shanita R. Johnson, Owner of BKJ Global Management Consulting, LLC is a prime example of how a small, minority- or woman-owned business can achieve success with Port Houston.
More online shopping trends mean more goods moving across Port Houston’s docks, and the need for additional space to store that cargo. Thus, we are seeing distribution centers in the Port Houston region being built to keep up with demand.
