How to get minority-owned business certification
The National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) is one of several organizations that offer multicultural and diverse-owned business certification. In the case of the NMSDC and other organizations, an individual owner must be at least 25% Asian-Indian, Asian-Pacific, Black, Hispanic or Native American to qualify as a minority owner. Getting certified could mean easier access to federal, state, local and corporate contracts. The benefits also include access to networking events, consulting services, entrepreneurship coaching and more.
