The Business Diversity Institute (BDI) is a 501(c)(3) charity organization that has provided education and enhanced contracting opportunities to minority-owned, women-owned, emerging small businesses and entrepreneurs for over twenty years, through round training designed to boost the capacity and knowledge of minority owned businesses in Oregon and SW Washington. Among the prominent events associated with this organization, Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week has celebrated the success and contributions of minority owned businesses for over two decades.

BDI has planned a year of next level education, training and development designed to help strengthen and grow our local small business community. We ask that you consider partnering with BDI through one or more of our MED Week Sponsorship Opportunities. Through your sponsorship dollars, not only will you support small business development, but you will have the opportunity to outreach to minority-owned, women-owned and emerging small businesses and build valuable business relationships and expand your network.
