Minority Enterprise Development Week
The Power of Strategic Alliances in the Global Economy was the theme of the MED Week held in Houston in the month of October 2008 at the Hotel Hilton, University of Houston.
Minority Enterprise Development Week (MED Week) was designated by a presidential proclamation in 1983 to recognize and promote the achievements of minority-owned businesses and advocates of minority businesses. It is a national initiative of the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA). The event is celebrated and locally hosted by the Houston Minority Business Enterprise Center (HMBEC), which is operated by Grijalva & Allen, P.C. and partially funded by MBDA.
MED Week is designed to bring together private and public sector officials, corporate and government administrators and coordinators, political leaders, and knowledgeable business leaders and entrepreneurs to share information on key business issues and create, execute, and deliver business opportunities.
