" Building Relationships that Drive Business Growth"
The Greater Cleveland Association of African-American Entrepreneurs (GCAAE) exists primarily to provide a structured forum for members to establish long-term business relationships in a positive, high-energy environment, which fosters business growth. This is accomplished by embracing a ?Give and it shall be given unto you? philosophy.
We offer more than just meeting, greeting and fleeing. Our members are committed to understanding your business and giving reliable business referrals as well as exchanging business strategies and networking ideas.
The goal of the group is not to push our own businesses on others, but to help members build and grow business profit and opportunities by word of mouth advertising. Word of mouth is the best and cheapest form of advertising. Joining a referral based networking group will help you spread the word of about your business.
"It's like hiring a sales team to help promote your business."

Happy New Year!
It's time to start your networking efforts off right with the GCAAE...Our next meeting is scheduled for Friday, January 15th @ 6:30pm. Visit www.meetup.com/tgcaae.com for meeting details.
One of the most beneficial aspects of the GCAAE is the structured meeting agenda. We meet every other Friday. All meetings are engaging, high-energy, informational and focused. Each person has an opportunity to expose their business to those in attendance as well as network one-on-one during our speed networking session. The best of all, referrals are passed amongst members during each meeting. I guarantee you, this is not your typical networking group! Only one entrepreneur per industry is allowed, so there is never competition for referrals. Please visit www.gcaae.com for additional details about the group.
Members and non-members must RSVP to attend each meeting. Members, if you can not make the meeting, we ask that you send a representative. Attendance is crucial to the success of the Association. You must complete a Membership application and be approved by the GCAAE Organizers in order to be considered an official member.
Visitors are permitted to visit up to two times prior to considering joining the GCAAE.
"Please remember to bring plenty of business cards!"
