OhioMBE is Ohio’s largest Black-owned business newspaper.  We have created a unique niche in marketing to the small and minority business community in the Buckeye State.  We provide access to contracting opportunities via our bid notice distribution services and the hosting of the monthly OhioMBE Procurement Fairs.

Bid notices are emailed, posted, tweeted and shared. The information stays on our website and email distribution list until the bid date.  Bid notices are distributed on demand.

Our database contains over 10,000 online subscribers plus over 5,000 who receive our hard copy.  Our complimentary publication is distributed at area churches, businesses, libraries, colleges and business resource agencies.  An electronic copy is available at our website www.OhioMBE.com.
