As the key driver of minority business development for over 40 years and counting in Michigan, MMSDC is the home of the Michigan Minority Business Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame was created to ensure that iconic Michiganders are celebrated for the indelible imprint they’ve made on minority businesses that are driving the state’s economy while empowering communities that are often left behind. This prestigious honor recognizes those who have made a positive transformational impact on Michigan’s minority businesses, including devoted government and community leaders as well as iconic minority business enterprise (MBEs) and corporate leaders.
Michigan Minority Business Hall of Fame accepts nominations annually and is open to any native or current resident of Michigan, living or deceased, who has made significant contributions benefiting the minority business community in the state. Michigan business leaders submit nominations and a panel of judges selects the inductees.
