New website aims to help small businesses

May 14, 2017

The Mississippi Development Authority’s Minority and Small Business Development Division launched a new business directory and minority certification website, www.mississippi.org/minority-certification. The website is designed to assist Mississippi’s minority- and women-owned businesses in attaining long-term growth and success in the state.

“The website is a valuable resource for those looking to grow their business and procure new opportunities with agencies throughout Mississippi through a variety of programs,” said MDA Executive Director Glenn McCullough Jr.

The website features an online application where qualified minority- and women-owned businesses can apply for the division’s Minority Business Certification Program. Certified companies receive assistance with marketing and identifying procurement opportunities with government agencies, institutions of higher learning and private sector businesses. These companies are also listed in the Minority Business Directory.

“Mississippi’s minority- and women-owned businesses are an integral part of the state’s economy, as well as the communities in which they are located,” said MSBDD Director Carol Harris. “The new Minority Business Certification website enhances MDA’s ongoing efforts to increase their visibility so they can win contracts and enjoy success for years to come.”
