This year’s MED Week hosted by the Minority Enterprise Development Corporation, was a week that provided business matchmaking, trade shows, and seminars on topics such as establishing relationships with buyers, conducting business with the government, and much more. This year, the Envision team had the opportunity of presenting on who we are and our exclusive partnership with the Beck Group to a room of Purchasing Agents & Supplier Diversity Liaisons from throughout Tampa, Florida.
This opportunity was made possible when the Minority Enterprise Development Corporation noticed how Tampa International Airport interacted with various MBE firms on their recent expansion project and reached out to the corporation to host this year’s MED week bus tour. With this invitation, the Tampa International Airport reached out to a few of their most impacted MBE firms who partnered with them on phase 1 of their newest expansion projects, including Envision.
From three years ago being awarded our first $60,000 contract from Tampa International Airport through Skanska, to it growing into a $2 million opportunity, we have experienced the passion and pure heart’s desire of Tampa International Airport, to not only include MBE’s on their expansion projects, but to also see them grow.
