BGV Supplier
Diversity Initiative

The BGV Supplier Diversity initiative bridges the gap between businesses owned by Black/Brown woman-identifying founders and large corporations. This initiative opens the door to  low barrier access to obtaining long term and sustainable contracts with large organizations for founders and provides a solution to corporations for creating a pipeline to doing business with minority owned businesses in order to diversify the impact of capital in the ecosystem.
