Tennessee Minority Supplier Development Council connects minority firms with big business

The Nashville City Paper covered the recent awards ceremony of the Tennessee Minority Supplier Development Council.

"The [Tennessee Minority Supplier Development Council] matches its 250 minority supplier members, which are certified to be at least 51 percent owned by African-Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans or Asian-Americans, with 145 corporate members that wish to buy goods and services from minority-owned businesses."

"Since its inception in 1980, the TMSDC has helped minority businesses generate about $10.1 billion in contracts."

"In celebration of that success, about 400 people attended its 13th annual Impact Awards black-tie gala last month at the Sheraton Downtown Nashville Hotel, where the group honored corporations and minority businesses that foster economic development."
