Our Mission

The mission of the Derby Diversity Business Summit (DDBS) is to support organizations who work to advance Diverse Owned Businesses. 

To accomplish our mission, we identify projects in which we can provide funding that supports education, business development and training initiatives for organizations committed to the advancement of Diverse Owned Businesses. Each year the DDBS committee chooses an organization that meets specific criteria and aligns with our objectives of strengthening the capacity and scale of Diverse Owned Businesses. 

Learn about this year's project and our non-profit partner NAWBO.

Our purpose

The purpose of the Derby Diversity & Business Summit is to bring elite Women, LGBTBE, Minority and Veteran Owned Enterprises together to network, develop, and ENJOY Derby festivities with Corporate partners seeking to further strengthen their ties with certified firms with strong capacity and scalability. A portion of the event proceeds will be donated to NAWBO Kentucky to jump start its GROW program.
