MBE 2 MBE Exchange

The 2017 Minority Business Enterprise Exchange

Sponsored by AT&T, the 2017 MBE 2 MBE Exchange is intended for certified minority business enterprises (MBEs) in the Chicagoland area to build relationships and exchange procurement opportunities with other MBEs.

This year's 2017 MBE 2 MBE features:

  • Minority Business Enterprise Input Committee Update
  • Small Business Credit Survey Report
  • The Future of Payments: Small Business Perspective
  • MBDA Export Center Overview
  • LUNCH KEYNOTE SPEAKER - Stedman Graham: Identity Leadership (Sponsored by AT&T)

General Admission is FREE for Certified Minority Business Enterprises. There's a small fee for Exhibitors and non-certified minority business enterprises.

It is important that we utilize networking opportunities such as the MBE 2 MBE Exchange, Chicago Business Opportunity Fair, Procurement Luncheons and other events to leverage relationships with corporations but also to establish sustainable business relationships with other MBEs. These relationships can build capacity and potentially create new opportunities for teaming or partnering on large contracts.
