The US Government’s Minority Business Development Agency reports that there are 5.8 million minority-owned firms in the US today, contributing $1 trillion in economic output and 5.8 million jobs per year. A total of 10% of these MBEs (Asian American, Black, Hispanic, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander, and Native American) fall under the Professional, Scientific, and Tech umbrella. And according to recent data from the United States Census Bureau on minority business ownership, “Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services” is the second largest sector of Black-owned businesses in the country. These businesses are contributing greatly to our country, not only in terms of generating jobs and revenue, but also in providing a valuable service.

Indeed states that Information Technology (IT) Services “allow businesses to access the technical tools and information they use for their operational processes and daily tasks.”

While it may sound simple by definition, this vital field requires a high level of technical skill, expertise, and experience to be successful. As such, the Eastern Minority Supplier Development Council (EMSDC) is proud to shine a spotlight on four of our incredible suppliers that specialize in IT Services.
