The National Minority Supplier Development Council was chartered in 1972 to assist minority businesses of all sizes in their effort to obtain growth opportunities. It is one of the country’s leading non-profit business membership organizations and serves as a direct link between Corporate America and minority business enterprises. The NMSDC network includes a national office in New York City, and affiliated Regional Councils across the country. There are more than 1,700 corporate members in the NMSDC network, including nearly 450 national members representing America’s top publicly owned, privately held and foreign-owned companies.
The NMSDC Regional Councils have certified and matched more than 12,000 minority-owned businesses with member corporations that want to purchase their goods and services. Council members include major national and regional corporations, educational and financial institutions and government agencies.
Go to the NMSDC site for more information on the certification process.
The NMSDC serves as a liaison between Corporate America and minority business enterprises, to facilitate increased procurement and business opportunities for minority businesses across all industries.
BCF can be a key facilitator in connecting with Corporate America, and can assist in directing and obtaining contract financing for NMSDC-certified businesses.
Many procurement and diversity managers, for companies with minority supplier development programs, have successfully worked with us to help their suppliers obtain financing to fulfil contracts. While efforts may vary, the objective is the same: to assist in the growth and financial stability of minority suppliers.
