David Hinson, National DirectorOne of the real joys of the holiday season is having the opportunity to say thank you. As the year ends and the Agency reflects on all the things we are grateful for, MBDA’s relationship with you, our stakeholders, is especially treasured. Your continued partnership throughout this year has greatly contributed to our success in increasing the growth and global competitiveness of minority-owned businesses.

MBDA is proud to have reached a number of special milestones this year. In particular: we awarded $7.3 million in grants to boost job creation through the funding of seven new MBDA Business Centers; we made a supplemental investment of $625,000 to five existing MBDA Business Centers to better serve minority business communities nationwide; we launched a national webinar series that highlighted the resources of the government in support of international trade, federal contracting, and industry specific initiatives; and, we commemorated a 31-year history of celebrating minority-owned businesses and stakeholders during National Minority Enterprise Week, December 1-7, 2013, as designated by Presidential Proclamation.
