June 22, 2023 SYMPOSIUM
Disruption is the new norm in rapidly transforming digitalized and ESG-driven supply chains. Minority small-midsize manufacturers’ (SMMs’) reliance on organic growth to be competitive and meet customer need for resiliency and volume demand can result in marginalization. To empower minority SMMs to have significant community economic impact in underserved communities, this event focuses on how to accelerate (1) their capability development and capacity expansion through the resources of selected entities in the below depicted Diverse Manufacturing Alliance (DMSCA) Ecosystem; and (2) through Supplier Member presentations on how Ecosystem Financial and Funding Capital Assistance Partners could potentially support capacity expansion.
