A Message From Our Founder

In the I.E. as in greater Los Angeles and the State of California African Americans are 7% of the population but own less than 1% of revenue from business ownership. Changing this paradigm is essential to improving our economic health and increasing the number of our families that are middle class. CEEM is a California Cooperative Corporation whose purpose is to unite our community around its market potential and provide support to black owned business and individuals that allow them to operate successful enterprises. Key to our success is a commitment to shared core values that create a community ethic driving greater prosperity. Our aim is to sell what we buy.

Reginald Webb, CEEM Founder, Entrepreneur
