Minority-owned Business Certifications

The Oklahoma Department of Commerce serves as an initial point of contact for aspiring and established business owners, including minority entrepreneurs. As with all businesses, the agency provides information on starting a business, organizations that assist small businesses, and other common questions.

We encourage minorities starting or expanding business to contact our Minority Business Coordinator for additional information specific to minority-owned businesses.

Contact Ken Talley, Minority Business Coordinator at 405-815-5218 or ken.talley@okcommerce.gov.

Certification Programs

There are several minority-owned business certification programs. They are also sometimes called disadvantaged business certifications. Depending on your customers and markets, it may be advantageous to be certified with several programs.

Minority Business Organizations

Joining a business organization may be a valuable investment for yourself, your business and your community. Local chambers of commerce and other organizations provide information, resources, and build relationships between fellow business owners and community leaders.
