Event Details

Hosted By: South Florida Minority Supplier Development Council (SFMSDC), a non-profit organization whose purpose is to foster the business development and expansion of minority-owned businesses. The Council acts as a liaison between Corporate America and government agencies and Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) in Southern Florida.  The goal of the organization is to increase purchasing from minority-owned businesses by corporations and government entities while increasing MBEs’ operating capacity through hands-on business assistance, training and access to technology and capital resources.  In its 37-year history, the SFMSDC has connected certified MBEs to more than $23 billion in new revenue through contracts with corporate and government buyers.

GrowFL:  Economic gardening is a philosophy that embraces strategies to grow existing businesses in a community, region or state and is the basis for the entrepreneurship programs at the Florida Economic Gardening Institute (GrowFL). Initially created in 2009 as a pilot program, GrowFL, at the University of Central Florida, is now a critical component to Florida’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and the state’s overall economic development strategy. GrowFL focuses its efforts on initiatives that strengthen the service offerings of entrepreneurial support organizations throughout Florida and by delivering critical research and strategy support to help second-stage growth entrepreneurs prosper. GrowFL has helped over 400 companies create more than 1,400 new jobs statewide since 2009.
