Minority Business and Technology Initiative


The Minority Business and Technology Initiative (Tech Initiative) collaborates with Amazon Business.

The Minority Business and Technology Initiative is a collaboration between Amazon Business and the U.S. Department of Commerce, Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) that seeks to accelerate the inclusion of minority owned enterprises in e-commerce and to improve the use of digital technology for domestic and global sales.


The Tech initiative will implement pioneering approaches that will support minority business owners and entrepreneurs in the following ways:

- Enable MBEs to increase their online presence by leveraging Amazon Business as a solution to reach more buyers and sell globally through e-commerce.

- Access to success coaches for products listed on Amazon Business.

- Connect MBEs with business buyers in the B2B marketplace.
