FORUM AT A GLANCE

Each year, New York State spends billions of dollars on services and commodities across many different markets. Where are the new business opportunities for MWBEs in New York State? How can you mine these opportunities and translate them into real contracts for your company? This two-day forum will show you how.

Under Governor Cuomo’s leadership, the State has made great strides in contracting with Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs). When the Governor first took office in 2011, State contracting with MWBEs stood at 10.3 percent. By the end of 2014, State agencies and authorities were awarding 25.12 percent of all contracts to MWBEs – far exceeding the Governor’s stated goal of 20 percent. That spending translates into over $1.9 billion in contracts with MWBEs, the highest of any State in the country.

In 2014, Governor Cuomo increased the statewide goal to 30 percent – leading, again, the country in increasing opportunities for minority and women-owned businesses.
