We help make certification faster, easier and more productive

Why get MBE certified


Achieving Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) certification through the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) qualifies your company to meet the diversity requirements for the more than 1,450 corporate members of the NMSDC whose roster includes many of America’s largest and best-known public and privately-owned global companies.


By becoming MBE certified, your company can:


  • Gain access to new sales opportunities
  • Create a new point of market differentiation
  • Improve contract expansion
  • Enhance your corporate image/brand/culture
  • Attract and retain employees
  • Appeal to shifting demographics
  • Build consumer loyalty and market share
  • And more

Obtaining MBE certification can be challenging. Diversity Capital has a proven process in place to handle all the details on your behalf. We’ll guide you through the entire process, help with preparation of required documentation, and maintain total security of sensitive ownership information. As a result, you can get certified as quickly as possible with the least effort on your part.


And maximize the rewards


Getting you certified is just step one. No less important, we provide you with a detailed marketing playbook on the specific steps your company can take to best capitalize on MBE certification. It will show you how to strategically navigate the MBE ecosystem, secure incremental revenue opportunities, and more.


We can also provide whatever implementation support you need to increase speed to market, such as:

Most companies are able to achieve very quick ROI as the modest investment required is usually recouped in one or two sales opportunities that directly result from becoming MBE certified.
