The FSMSDC was founded in 1975 by the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Miami Progress Foundation for the purpose of fostering the development of minority-owned businesses throughout South Florida. Central to our mission is the principle that networks and relationships among and between minority businesses and corporate and government buyers build businesses. The Council's main function is to register and certify minority-owned businesses. The process ensures that these businesses are 51% minority-owned and operated in accordance with the guidelines set by the National Minority Supplier Development Council. The FSMSDC is one of 23 regional councils affiliated with the NMSDC. In order to more effectively carry out its mission, the FSMSDC provides support to corporate members and MBE affiliates from our headquarters in Miami as well as key locations throughout the state of Florida. Our service area includes the entire state of Florida.
