Welcome to CEE Plus!

Origin Story

The Coalition for an Equitable Economy was born as a product of the restless need to provide actionable advocacy, targeted resources and inclusive capital access to BIPOC and Minority-owned small businesses in Massachusetts, after the statistics during and post-covid era revealed the shocking light on the chronically uneven playing field Black, Latino and Indigenous entrepreneurs experience at the face of racial disparity. 

Four years later, CEE is the leader non-profit organization in the Bay State promoting the programs and connections needed to close the racial wealth gap. In 2024, we took on the mission to lead a more impactful initiative to unite Business Support Organizations, Ecosystem Supporters and Small Business Owners into a comprehensive space where each can contribute and collaborate at their specialty; making our shared goal to achieve racial and ethnic parity in business ownership by the end of 2030 a more tangible reality. That's why we created CEE+.
