BUFFALO, N.Y. (The Buffalo News) — The Buffalo Niagara Partnership wants to help minority-owned businesses grow, and create a pathway for them to become Partnership board members.

Those goals are the driving forces behind the Partnership’s new Minority Business Initiative, which has kicked off with five participating companies.
