The U.S. Department of Commerce, Minority Business Development Agency (www.mbda.gov) is the only federal agency solely dedicated to fostering the growth and global competitiveness of U.S. minority business enterprises. MBDA programs are focused on economic empowerment and leading minority business enterprises through business transformation. For more than 50 years, MBDA has helped minority-owned firms gain greater access to capital and contracts, build scale and capacity, and expand into new markets.
Since 1983, MBDA has hosted the National MED Week observance honoring the outstanding achievements and leadership of minority-owned firms, organizations and advocates from across the Nation. This year, MBDA has transformed its traditional programming to fit the dynamic virtual conference environment. The virtual conference experience will host more than twenty unique forums featuring inspirational stories, industry insights, and networking connections. 2020 National MED Week is virtually unmissable!
