The Southern Florida Minority Supplier Development Council has launched a new brand and expanded services to promote the growth of the organization’s Minority Business Enterprises membership, said Beatrice Louissaint, president and CEO of the SFMSDC.

The expanded programming includes a new Technical Assistance Program for the areas of marketing, legal and finance; a strategic alliance with the Small Business Administration; and the expansion of professional staff to support the programs. "The goal of TAP is to empower firms with a level of professional guidance rarely leveraged by MBEs, especially as they attempt to operationally transition into new contracts or revenue generating opportunities," said Louissaint.

SFMSDC is a non-profit that acts as a liaison between corporate America and Minority Business Enterprises in 16 counties including Miami-Dade, Broward, Monroe, St. Lucie, Collier, Charlotte, Martin, Lee and Palm Beach counties.
