Welcome, Guest  


In 1968, a chain of events erupted into civil and economic mayhem that shook Chicago at its very core.

Rising above the turmoil, a group of corporate and community leaders were determined to cast a spotlight of hope on seemingly hopeless situations and created The Chicago Business Opportunity Day.

The following year in 1969, the event was officially re-named CBOF, Chicago Business Opportunity Fair.

CBOF was a game-changer then and is still a game-changer in the new Millennium. It remains as the signature event of ChicagoMSDC, a thought leader in minority business since 1968.
