About Us

The FSMSDC was founded in 1975 by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Miami Progress Foundation for the purpose of fostering the development of minority-owned businesses throughout South Florida. Central to our mission is the principle that networks and relationships among and between minority businesses and corporate and government buyers build businesses.
The Mission of the Florida State Minority Supplier Development Council is to link corporations and government agencies with Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) to foster business development and expansion.

An MBE is a Minority Business Enterprise. MBEs are companies owned by United States citizens who are Asian, Black, Hispanic or Native American. Ownership by minority individuals means the business is at least 51% owned by such individuals.

Miami and Orlando MBDA Centers

The Business Centers and MBE Aquaculture assists eligible MBEs in growing their businesses and competing in domestic and global markets.

The primary goal of the DBE Specialized Development Program is to increase the number of DBEs participating on FDOT contracts and the dollar percentage awarded to DBEs by providing assistance to Prime Contractors and facilitating the development of DBEs to obtain contracts.
