Cambridge Business Diversity Directory Form

The Cambridge Business Diversity Directory is intended to celebrate and highlight the diverse independent and locally-owned small businesses, entities, and sole proprietors whose place of business is in Cambridge.

For the purposes of this directory, a “business” is defined as a for-profit entity with goods and services available to the public (whether online or in-person) and whose ownership structure is not a franchise or a formula-based business. An “entity” is defined as a non-profit offering goods and services for a fee to the public (whether online or in-person).

A business or entity must have a fully launched, or in-operation enterprise, to be included in the Cambridge Business Diversity Directory.

To have your business or entity considered for inclusion in the upcoming edition of the directory, please fill out the form below. All respondents must meet the stated eligibility requirements in order to be confirmed for inclusion in the directory.
