About Bowie Business Innovation Center

our mission

The Bowie Business Innovation Center (Bowie BIC) is a business accelerator and expert network serving minority-owned businesses in Prince George’s County and the Greater Washington Metropolitan Area.  Our accelerators educate businesses on becoming bankable; equip businesses to pursue government contracts; and elevate business performance in all areas during rapid growth and expansion.

We bridge the knowledge gap through our flagship programs in which minority business owners directly engage subject matter experts in one-to-one exchanges.

People are at the core of our success and collaboration is our currency. Our relationships with local banks, businesses, and government are a testament to the rapport between our clients, staff, executive leadership, and board members. We are truly a business community.
