Developing a More Competitive Business Ecosystem

In today’s business environment, supplier diversity has emerged as a critical component of business ecosystems by stimulating economic growth, promoting social equity and generating business development.  Diverse-owned businesses—those owned by women, racial or ethnic minorities, veterans or people with disabilities—have faced historical challenges in securing capital, expanding their operations, accessing markets and, yes, being suppliers for corporations. Fortunately, with the efforts of corporations that are committed to change – Pacesetters – and a network of organizations working for change, supplier diversity has evolved to make a positive impact on communities, industries and businesses.

Supplier Diversity Connect, as a program of Develop America Inc., works to more intentionally integrate and align business capacity building with value added connections to provide diverse-owned businesses greater access to opportunities in corporations, industries and markets.  At the end of the day, Diversity is measured by the value that it creates.

How can your firm become a part of the larger business ecosystem, as a diverse-owned business?  Well, the first step is to get connected to that ecosystem and that is what we can help you do.
