The #BUYDIVERSE campaign is a collective effort to activate spending by choosing minority owned businesses and the corporations that support them. As a new and quickly adopted recognition, the #BUYDIVERSE initiative gives public acknowledgment to the economic engine that will continue to propel the US economy. Every day, we have a choice to consider minority-owned firms for business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-consumer (B2C) purchases. When we move from consideration to commitment, the dynamics for civic economics will have a multiplier effect on minority communities and the entire economy.

Minority-owned businesses enrich the communities from which they come and the ones into which they are welcomed. A revenue-generating firm has a direct, indirect and induced impact on the economy, the city/market it serves, the employees, the company’s suppliers, and the community at large.

Minority-owned businesses create jobs and generate tax revenue, particularly in the areas which need them the most. With unique perspectives, minority entrepreneurs bring innovative goods and services to the marketplace. When you choose minority owned firms and the corporations who do business with them, you are investing in the future of your community.
