Fort Worth Business Assistance Center

The Fort Worth Business Assistance Center provides business consulting, training and technical assistance for small, women and minority owned businesses.


The Fort Worth Business Assistance Center (BAC) plays an integral role in the development of small businesses in the City and we strive to implement effective training programs. These training workshops range from classes designed to help develop a business plan and acquire financing as well as instruction on handling day-to-day business operations with various computer software programs.

The BAC also partners with the City of Fort Worth’s Office of Business Diversity to outline specific procurement opportunities within the City. The success of these programs is a testament to the strong partnerships the Fort Worth Business Assistance Center has fostered with the private sector and our business development partners at the various Chambers of Commerce, colleges and universities, and state and federal agencies.
