Technical Assistance and Development Pool (TADP)

The Mid-South Minority Council TADP, Inc. (TADP) is a 501(c)(3) training and development program established in 2002 by the Mid-South Minority Business Council (MMBC). The TADP and The MMBC Continuum work together to bring world-class programs and services to mid-south businesses to promote economic development.

Primarily first-generation business owners, minority and women-owned businesses lacked some business structure, strategic planning, access to financial resources and management practices that promote growth and development. The programs and services of the TADP are tailored to the unique environment in which businesses operate. Additionally, the breadth and depth of TADP programs and services highlight the experience and knowledge needed to support and enhance business growth.

Cash Continuum

The Cash Continuum is a closed-loop collaborative financial services solution for small businesses, primarily minority and women-owned (M/WBE). The solution provides access to cash, financial services education, technical assistance, consulting, and one-on-one mentoring. It is designed to serve businesses at all stages of the business lifecycle through a streamlined approach to guide business owners in gaining access to cash, grants, micro and commercial loans, lines of credit, equity investments, and mergers and acquisitions.

Loan Fund

The MMBC Continuum recognized the growth needs of minority-owned businesses and has developed programs to assist these firms with growing their businesses. Consequently, The MMBC Continuum Working Capital Loan Fund (WCLF) was started for the purpose of providing access to working capital funds for M/WBEs in construction related industries.
