About the St. Pete Business League


It began with a vision and a dream and grew into something amazing!

The SPBL has been an active Non- Profit Organization since 2014.

With new members each month, it is our mission to close the gap between business opportunities, workforce development, Grant opportunities and our black-owned businesses.



Why do business with Black-Owned Companies?

1. Closes the Racial Wealth Gap

2. Strengthens Local Economies

3.  Fosters Job Creation

4. Celebrates Black Culture and Serves Communities

5. Holds other Companies Accountable

6. Visibility and Representation in the Green Economy


Diversity builds economic vitality, uplifts communities, and promotes productivity and resilience


Why should you join the St. Pete Business League?

Being active in the community positions a company as a community partner and demonstrates to its clients that they care about the place where their employees and customers live. We all live here or have an interest in seeing St. Petersburg become the place we all one day envision. Where all businesses are treated equal. 

Besides generating new leads, a hidden benefit of joining is improved employee recruitment and retention. When competing for the best and the brightest job candidates, this can make a business stand apart from its competition. Being part of a Community the will help you to have access to the tools to make your business excel. Thus, ensuring a promising career that they can live being part of.

When businesses team up with the groups that are working hard to make their neighborhoods a better place, everyone wins. With a healthy perspective and by employing the aforementioned strategies, companies can allocate resources without breaking the bank, and enjoy the benefits of both a strong, positive reputation in their community and strong morale and team spirit in the workplace.
