WELCOME TO THE CVMSDC
Our Business is: Innovation, Elevation, and Transformation
Thank you for visiting the Carolinas-Virginia Minority Supplier Development Council – your intentionality makes a difference.
CVMSDC is a non-profit corporation; chartered 44 years ago to enhance business opportunities for minority-owned companies by providing support through developing mutually beneficial networking opportunities with corporate members and promoting minority business development. Within business and industry, Supplier Development refers to the process of connecting minority businesses that provide goods and services to corporations for the purpose of enhancing and supporting manufacturing, development, and product delivery into the marketplace.
As a pro-business and development advocacy organization, our business is Innovation, Elevation, and Transformation.
- Innovation is the process of advancing ideas, methods, products, services, and solutions.
- Elevation is promoting and uplifting individuals, groups, organizations, and business entities.
- Transformation is facilitating a change in form, appearance, or process.
Through the work of CVMSDC.org, Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) and Corporate Members are brought together for the mutual benefit of advancing and innovating Supplier Development ideals in the marketplace, elevating minority business participation levels, and transforming the economic landscape from the status quo to foster economic development and wealth creation within the CVMSDC network.
For every $1 invested with CVMSDC suppliers, we realize a $1.72 impact on the economy. This GDP impact and trickle- down effect comes from Jobs, Goods & Services, Incomes, Infrastructure, and Taxes.
An investment in Supplier Development is an investment in the Economy. You can make a difference through intentional engagement with CVMSDC.org
I look forward to engaging with each of you at our upcoming event: AMP21 – Our annual meeting and ProForum Conferences.
