“As NMSDC continues its march to $1 trillion in annual revenue for NMSDC-certified MBEs, we know how essential it is that we cultivate the minority business leaders of the future,” said NMSDC Senior Director of MBE Services and Strategic Partnerships Jetheda Hernandez. “To accelerate the growth of the next generation of certified businesses we have expanded the EYE program to include the largest number of participants in its history,” she added.


EYE programming examines proven best practices to address common issues Gen Z and millennial entrepreneurs face in the context of today’s business environment including:

·        The five key methods of operating a successful business.

·        Strategies to anticipate organizational needs and execute innovative responses.

·        Professional development and access to top business leaders and corporate executives.

·        Supply chain processes and the benefits of developing relationships with supply chain practitioners.


As part of the program, participants must obtain NMSDC MBE certification (if not already certified). They will also have the opportunity to compete in a pitch competition at the 2024 Annual Conference in Exchange taking place in Atlanta, Oct. 20 – 23.
