About the Business Technical Assistance Program (B-TAP)

The Business Technical Assistance Program (B-TAP) was created to bridge equity, knowledge, and access gaps for small and medium-sized businesses into the mainstream economy. B-TAP contracts service providers to work directly with new and existing businesses, providing consulting support and technical assistance to support businesses located in the City of Minneapolis. Through the work with those businesses, we learned that other systems are needed in order to promote growth opportunities for disadvantage businesses and to advance social equity in the City of Minneapolis. To that effect, B-TAP created B-TAP+.

B-TAP+ has 3 main objectives:
