Diverse Business Development Center

The Diverse Business Development Center will provide valuable support and critical resources to help DBEs optimize the opportunities to continue building and expanding their business. Our goal is to use the collective resources of our diverse suppliers to create synergy in the diverse business community. To do this, we need a base, a center for excellence, a place where the exchange of ideas, knowledge and support is the essential ingredient – a Center for success. The Center’s objective is to expand business opportunity for diverse entrepreneurs. Building, growing and maintaining a successful business is filled with uncertainties and substantial challenges. Having the vision and know-how to drive a business forward is critical to success.

The Capabilities Review Forum

The DBE Capability Review Forums provide certified DBEs the opportunity to showcase their company while educating the Council on the company’s business products and services, and it’s goals as it relates to potential corporate business. This Forum will also allow council management to provide valuable feedback to help you successfully capitalize on corporate purchasing opportunities. The three-hour capabilities review session will be attended by three non-competing DBEs. Each company will have 30-40 minutes to present their company as it would to a major corporation. Read more…

Category Sourcing Exchanges

These sessions connect sourcing professionals from Council member corporations to DBEs based on product/service categories. This gives both the DBE and the member organization a more targeted approach to identifying mutually beneficial supplier relationships. Category Sourcing Exchanges provide the opportunity for buyers from specific product/service categories to engage with suppliers who offer services specifically within those categories. This program allows for a highly focused and productive connection between supply-chain decision-makers and DBE suppliers. These meetings will be scheduled on a monthly basis. Read more…
