Minority Business Economic Forum

In May of 2022, the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) held the inaugural Minority Business Economic Forum (Forum) in Chicago to ignite the flame of economic equity and set a bold goal to reach $1 trillion in annual certified MBE revenue.

About the Forum

Inspired by the World Economic Forum, the Forum will be the leading event where NMSDC and its partners tap the top leaders of corporate America, the Administration, and the leading thought academic leaders to recalibrate the MBE narrative to be an integral part of the American economy.

The Forum seeks to:

  • Galvanize a vanguard of chief officers to amplify the impact and influence of MBEs on the American economy.

  • Generate corporate spend and pledges towards $1 trillion in certified MBE revenue.

  • Spark actionable solutions to the critical challenges minority businesses face, including access to contracts, capital, and information.

  • Forge pivotal relationships between Corporate Plus MBEs and key C-suite leadership.
