Just as technology continues to advance and redefine expectations, so should supplier diversity. The days of simply submitting an RFP and blindly marketing your small business are over; now business deals often begin with relationships first formed online. The core functionality of MBEConnect, the diverse supplier and corporate vendor network, utilizes technology as a way to build a better supplier diversity community through social networking. Now it is the time for the next level of connection: detailed profiles integrated with video, interactive links, presentation and more through MBEConnect Profiles.
Our goal in creating MBEConnect Profiles is to construct the future of supplier diversity through in-depth knowledge sharing. MBEConnect Profiles places all pertinent information regarding the best and brightest MWBEs in one central location that you can access on-the-go and at your convenience. This leads to better outreach for supplier diversity programs, better fits when looking for suppliers, and growth opportunities for both small businesses and corporate suppliers. We feel confident that we have raised the bar on what it means to have a business profile published and we are confident that this publication will become a major tool in the field of supplier diversity.
We are proud to feature the outstanding businesses honored at the WBENC Summit & Salute, in our first issue of MBEConnect Profiles and plan to continue this high standard in future issues.
