The Capital Region Minority Supplier Development Council (CRMSDC) is one of 24 regional affiliates of the National Minority Supplier Development Council.
Our MISSION is to assist our corporate members in improving the diversification and innovation of their supply chains by connecting them to well developed, certified minority business enterprises.
To achieve our mission, we will:
Certify – Conduct a rigorous, multi-phased document review and interview process to ensure that each supplier is at least 51% owned, controlled and operated by an ethnic minority.
Develop – Maintain a robust education and training system designed to promote increased business acumen and capacity building among MBEs.
Connect – Promote a series of flagship networking events and outreach activities to facilitate professional interaction between Corporate Members and MBEs
Advocate – Provide our members with access to a database featuring a plethora of viable entrepreneurs with which they can do business, then proactively recommend MBEs to meet the needs of our members.
CRMSDC provides Corporate Members and NMSDC certified Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) with a thriving ecosystem pulsing with progressive opportunities to grow, partner, and develop their capabilities and their inherent entrepreneurial spirits.
