MBA Goal Setters

Where minority business and opportunity meet

MBA Goal Setters Header

Put supplier diversity to work for your company and community.

To help develop a more robust procurement environment, the Chamber’s Minority Business Accelerator works to identify Goal Setters – large, complex, majority-owned corporations and organizations – interested in the benefits of diversifying their supply chains. Once established as an MBA Goal Setter, the MBA team provides meaningful introductions to help spark new relationships, source diverse procurement partners and fuel innovation while creating jobs and wealth among our local minority community.

Each year, approximately 40 companies set goals and track their spending with local minority companies. Since 2010, demand in our local buying market has increased by 120%, creating contract opportunities worth $4 billion for minority companies in the region. And for the second consecutive year, Goal Setter minority spend topped $1 billion in 2014.
