A LaVista-based business firm is the newest member of a historically Black chamber based in Omaha.

Business Seals Consulting Firm held a ribbon cutting yesterday for their induction into the Midlands African Chamber. The consulting firm, which opened in 2018, helps Black-owned businesses. Deborah Dogba founded the company and said her firm has served nearly 250 businesses in its first three years.

“Our vision and mission is to, you know, support entrepreneurial endeavors in the Midwest especially in Omaha, Nebraska,” she said, “to equip them with the tools that they need to succeed and to remain sustainable and competitive on the market.”

The firm offers training and services for human resources, marketing strategies, businesses operations, accounting and occasionally investing, said Dogba, who was born in Togo, a country in West Africa, and graduated from the University of Nebraska-Omaha with a degree in business.

In all, about 50 people attended Thursday’s ribbon cutting.
