The National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC), create opportunities for MBE’s to connect to the hundreds of corporate members who wish to build relationships with trusted minority-owned companies, like NMLP.

Minority businesses must be at least 51% minority-owned operated and controlled. For the purposes of NMSDC’s program, a minority group member is an individual who is at least 25% Asian, Black, Hispanic or Native American. Minority eligibility is established via a combination of screenings, interviews and site visits. Ownership, in the case of a publicly-owned business, means that at least 51% of the stock is owned by one or more minority group members.
