About MED Week:
Minority Enterprise Development 'MED' Week:
For the last 27 years, the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) has brought you the nation's foremost business leaders to offer advice, counsel and insight to help minority businesses stay competitive in the marketplace ... some of today's most important leaders have been on the MED Week stage, providing inspiration and guidance to our entrepreneurs. MED Week remains a celebration of the contributions made by minority enterprises and a chance to recognize and honor accomplished minority business owners and advocates throughout the country. Networking is a vital component to MED Week, and no conference provides you with the opportunity to connect with some of the most exciting and innovative minds in minority business.
"When the Minority Business Development Agency was established over 40 years ago, its mandate was to build the wealth and capacity of minority owned firms, in support of U.S. job growth."
"Nationwide there are more than 5.8 million minority-owned businesses that contribute over $1 trillion to the U.S. economy, employ six million Americans, and create ten million more jobs through their economic activity. It is our goal at MBDA to ensure their continued success in strengthening the economy and creating the jobs Americans need. But more than that, we are also focused on increasing the size, scale and capacity of minority business enterprises so that we can create a new generation of minority-owned firms with annual revenues of $100 million, or more."
Please stay tuned for details on this fall's MED Week.
