The St. Louis region continues to face the business challenges posed by an increasingly global economy. Since we believe all citizens must become involved in our region's economic revitalization, the St. Louis Minority Supplier Development Council has incorporated this spirit of inclusion in its Mission.
The Council is dedicated to creating a climate in the business community that will make purchasing from Minority Business Entrepreneurs a normal corporate practice. Creating a user-friendly business climate will increase business opportunities for minority firms as well as enhance economic development in the bi-state region. The council works to achieve this objective by:
Advocating, marketing and promoting the utilization of Minority Business Entrepreneurs;
Assisting minority-owned businesses in obtaining access to diverse sources of capital; and
Developing educational and informational resources that enhance the capabilities of minority-owned businesses to fulfill corporate purchasing requirements
