About Us - Overview/Mission
Working with minority-owned suppliers brings competitive advantages. And MMSDC members recognize firsthand the importance of this strategy in achieving growth and winning new business.
Minority businesses have powerful, loyal customer connections because these companies have a strong understanding of their customers' unique heritage and culture. Such insight enables them to create products and services that are in demand within a specific market segment. You can build a network of these diverse suppliers through MMSDC and tap into this multicultural customer base. At the same time, you can contribute to the economic success of minority suppliers, as well as their employees and communities.
Progressive leaders strive to develop a supply base that reflects the diversity of their customers and marketplace; it just makes good business sense.
To certify minority-owned businesses for engagement by corporate members, provide access to procurement opportunities and develop capacity for minority business development.
MMSDC provides all members with meaningful access to quality business partners for improved procurement opportunities. By bringing Corporate Members and Certified MBEs together, mutually beneficial opportunities develop on a regular basis. Corporate Members are able to expand supply and product lines while lowering cost and gaining insight into varied multicultural consumers. MBEs can obtain new growth opportunities, widen their networks and learn from established corporate leaders.
Our goal is for Corporate Members and Certified MBEs alike to achieve economic growth via enhanced professional relationships and connections.
