In September, Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) will host its annual National Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week virtual conference on September 19 - 25. The conference celebrates the outstanding accomplishments of minority-owned companies and presents informational sessions and programming; offering interactive networking sessions to generate new connections and fresh perspectives. MED Week also features an awards ceremony where individuals and organizations are honored for exceptional commitments and contributions to minority business growth. In fact, the MED Week Awards are the highest national recognition an minority-owned firm can receive from the U.S. Department of Commerce.

This year, President Joe Biden will issue a proclamation declaring September 19 - 25, 2021, as 'National Minority Enterprise Development Week'. The National MED Week conference theme: “Reimagining Opportunity: Building Back Better, Together!” promotes a spectacular synergy between the President’s vision of economic equality for all Americans, and the expanded access to business capital, public contracting, strategic private commercial partnerships, and new market penetration by minority businesses which are inherently necessary to achieve the Administration’s objective.
