 Emerging Enterprises Business Development Center

The Emerging Enterprises Business Development Center is EGBI’s home. Emerging Enterprises was originated by the vision of two organizations, the Greater Austin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (GAHCC) with a mission or building its members’ wealth, and the Housing Authority of the City of Austin which is dedicated to creating and sustaining healthy communities that promote individual responsibility, economic growth, human dignity and hope for the future. All EGBI classes, programs, and consulting services are offered at the Emerging Enterprises Business Development Center. EGBI also offers low-cost incubation and leases that include access to the conference room, WiFi, phone line, and office equipment.

In addition, EGBI partners with local organizations to host their meetings and training sessions. EGBI’s training room accommodates up to 16 participants and the conference room holds up to 6.
