Community Innovation

An organic “Innovation Community” proof of concept is developing across the country by a set of organizations.  Aligning in part through specific partnership algorithms that couple institutions and people that have an interest in researching, producing and using workforce systems that marry human capital to high growth high demand ICT jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities.

Innovation in Motion is part of an industry focused, design based, applied research framework that studies how best systems connect and improve in public good ecosystems.  Workforce systems are best envisioned with stakeholders including employers.  Industry allows for multiple businesses and community partners, all sharing in the outcomes.

Given the great number of Minority Technology Companies (recorded at 65,000 employers with combined annual revenues of over $110 Billion), leveraging geography, our joint capacity to scale and our capacity to agree, will ignite new capabilities transforming this already fast-growing marketplace into a powerhouse of job creating opportunities.

The Council Exchange Board of Trade (CEBOT) is mission driven to provide our members with the kind business value that increases both profit and success.  CEBOT’s membership is intentionally diverse and includes government, K12, higher education, non-profits/NGO’s and business large and small with a focus on the Minority Technology Industry.

Breakthrough Research in Economic Inclusion

The Council Exchange Board of Trade (CEBOT) has established a list of significant replicable algorithms that are based on policy changes, past failures, disappointments and success.  To below is a sketch of CEBOT's Growth View, a representative CEBOT Flywheel. 

This diagram expresses CEBOT's deep respect and regard for the economic success of our members, putting CEBOT as a world class representative of the U.S. minority technology market.  The flywheel is driven by the increase in economic activity between members and other key stakeholders like investors, future workers and customers.

CEBOT Flywheel | Growth Algorithms in Action

There is no single action that creates momentum. Small wins lead to medium wins, which in turn lead to larger wins. As a result, once a flywheel has been established, it’s possible to rapidly increase results over time.  

CEBOT's Flywheel is sourced from decades of research on the minority tech industry and the efficiency created through integrative bargaining and the circular processes that are enabled through –governance, evidence based applied research and trust.


The CEBOT Leadership team include proven strategic thinkers focused on building alliances, making informed data-driven decisions.  CEBOT intermediates members, stakeholders, investors and government on corporate governance, innovation and mission driven transformation.

2023-2025 Market Research

CEBOT's LFRD division is initiating a one year study of over 2,600 U.S.  minority technology companies over the next twelve months to be able to source the largest 1,000 U.S. minority technology companies.

CEBOT will list the number of minority tech companies by state September, 2024 in an effort to bring more transparency to the market.

Looking Forward Research & Development

21st Century's Emerging Economic Imperative

Aligning economic choice with core human values  disrupts status quo and builds a sustainable business ecosystem.  Future profit ventures that focus on both customer and community needs  will prove most competitive.

Market Based Approach

Industry Governance Solutions
for  Social Network Systems

Many aspects of the world economy are determined more by corporate action than government control.  Research indicates a growing need for industry perspectives and solutions to externalities and social safety nets that harmonize profit to measured outcomes for the common good of people and planet.

Building Trust Through Collaboration

CEBOT Innovation In Motion

Use Case 1NSU RISE Center & Contract

Use Case 2Census - HUD - Data MVP

Use Case 3NTIA OMBI Industry Research

As a pilot to test the organizational relevance and impact the National Minority Technology Council (NMTC) implemented and executed a plan to help forward an HBCU vision while facilitating a large state contract.

The plan resulted in the building of a 240,000 sq ft building and a $15M contact sourced by the efforts of the NMTC,

Started back in 1999, NMTC was the predecessor to CEBOT.

CEBOT used federal open data to build the "American Community Collaboration Platform (ACCP)".  ACCP is developed as a digital community collaboration platform that brings efficiency and efficacy to entitlement reform.  ACCP utilizes a technology stack and a governed ecosystem model to ensures sustained innovation and program alignment through cross-federal agency collaboration, citizen design and participation, supplier integration, application development and a systematic approach to harmonizing outcomes.

NTIA launched the Minority Broadband Initiatives (MBI) in 2018 in partnership with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to work on solving broadband deployment challenges in vulnerable communities. In August 2021, NTIA established the Office of Minority Broadband Initiatives to codify NTIA’s work on the MBI.

CEBOT was instrumental as an industry partner to help frame the cross agency "SMART HBCU Cluster" to advocate for the development of a minority focused initiative that help to create this new federal agency.

Building a New American Economy

America's Community Collaboration Platform

The ACCP Digital Collaboration Platform was created to unify our nation and build together the critical relationships and infrastructure needed to restore the health and economy of the United States.  The broader impact of this research includes new international economic development methodologies.

There’s no greater economic engine in the world than the hard work and ingenuity of the American people. ACCP brings together industry, government, academia, service providers and community to digitally create a path towards economic mobility and self-sufficiency for targeted participants across United States.

The current version of the ACCP service offering introduces a two year longitudinal research on over 660,000 current HUD housing support recipients located in 50 Public Housing Authority (PHA) jurisdictions across the United States.

65,000 Minority Technology Companies

The Council Exchange Board of Trade (CEBOT) brings a rich history of advocacy and procurement policy guidance within the federal policy ecosystem.  The $110 Billion Minority Technology Industry is a source of jobs to over 550,000 professionals both in the United States and abroad. 

CEBOT  brings applied research & development to growth algorithms that catalyze regional innovation ecosystems, stimulating economic development and uplifting minority business and community.  CEBOT leadership and Senior Fellows bring new capabilities, investment and research capacity to the minority technology industry and to the stakeholders they serve.




Engagement requires value and produces consensus when process is key.  Governance gives rise to planned growth both individually and throughout the ecosystem.

Growth rises when not stifled by moral hazard.   CEBOT algorithms facilitate a deliberate system of principles to guide decisions and achieve rational outcomes.

Innovation liberates possibilities, improves systems and can transform bureaucracies into managed serviced/resource based functions.
