HMSDC Economic Impact
Early in 2015 the Houston Minority Supplier Development Council (HMSDC) retained The Institute for Thought Diversity to assist the Council in conducting a study to assess the economic impact that HMSDC certified Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) have on Houston, the most populous city in the state of Texas, and the fourth most populous in the United States. This impact includes the increased business activity created by the 677 MBEs of HMSDC, the jobs that are maintained/created as a result of this activity throughout the various sectors of the state’s economy, and the incremental business taxes that are generated at the local, state and national levels.
