Illinois Office of Minority Economic Empowerment

The Office of Minority Economic Empowerment will focus and promote opportunities for all minority communities across the state through targeted programs, resources and advocates. The goal is to ensure minority enterprises have an equal opportunity to contribute to the growth of the Illinois economy and serve as an advocate for businesses, entrepreneurs and start-ups in traditionally economically-disadvantaged groups.

The Office administers Advancing the Development of Minority Entrepreneurship (ADME), an investment program developed to strengthen Illinois’ start-up and small business community by tapping into the potential of minority entrepreneurs. The program will identify high-potential minority entrepreneurs and provide start to finish support to help them grow their business.
