Business Counseling

From starting a business to expansion, the chamber office provides a less intimidating and approachable atmosphere for entrepreneurs who are seeking guidance and encouragement about their business. We prepare these entrepreneurs for their upcoming business challenges such as “do you have what it takes”, to “where to begin”, to “growing challenges”. We also discuss several small business issues such as hiring/retaining employees, cost of providing benefits, business taxes and other challenges of owning a business.

With our recent success in this program, we have seen a dramatic increase number of contacts that have utilized our services. We also avoid duplicating services by partnering with other community programs such as the Midland College BEDC program which provide business plan assistance, seminars, and other counseling
services

MHCC Incubator Program

The Midland Hispanic Chamber of Commerce’s Business Development Center offers assistance and provides professional office space and onsite business consultations for early-stage businesses. The Incubator Program utilizes shared resources that lower a company’s overhead while increasing their capacity to succeed long-term. Nationwide, 87% of companies started in incubator programs have gone on to succeed and have remained in business. An average firm’s sales increased by more than 400% from the time they entered until the time they left the incubator program.

The Midland Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is a committed leader of broad-based economic development in the Midland/Odessa area. Our goal is to support the small business community by providing training, management and financial resources, expertise and support networks that enable small businesses to succeed and prosper.
