Minority Supplier Diversity UK
Our journey with MSDUK started out over a decade ago when we first worked with Mayank Shah on an organisation named the Centre for Research in Ethnic Minority Entrepreneurship – or CREME for short. This academic founded organisation swiftly developed in to its own stand alone and commercially viable enterprise which was later renamed, rebranded and repositioned to MSDUK – Minority Supplier Diversity UK. The organisation seeks to bring larger corporate supply chain managers together with ethnic minority business leaders with the sole purpose of finding relevant, commercially viable and beneficial partnerships. It’s a win win scenario where (sometimes) introverted corporations have the opportunity to employ the services of highly innovative, competitive and driven suppliers whom they may not normally have exposure to. Mayank and his team do an incredible job and the organisation is responsible for tens of millions of commerce and trade between ethnic owned SMEs and some of the largest global brands.
