The National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) supports the nomination of Mr. Dilawar Syed to be Deputy Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). The role of the Deputy Administrator at the SBA is a vital link between the NMSDC and the federal government to ensure equity inclusion for all small businesses in the U.S. Mr. Syed’s commitment to small and minority businesses makes him the perfect nominee for this critical position.

Mr. Syed’s dedication as an entrepreneur demonstrates his understanding of the needs of small businesses and the operational challenges of scaling a start-up to meet increased market demand. His impeccable skills and management astuteness are needed at a time when the SBA is pursuing its mission of running its core programs and ensuring business owners are aware of resources available to help their businesses thrive through the CHIPS, Science and Technology Act, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, and the Inflation Reduction Act.

We look forward to the U.S. Senate Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee successfully discharging his nomination from the committee and advancing it to the full Senate for confirmation. NMSDC looks forward to working with Mr. Syed as the SBA Deputy Administrator to scale small businesses and contribute to our nation’s economic growth.

CEO and President
