A Brief History of Minority Business Enterprise

The history of minority business enterprises and their development goes all the way back to 1969 with an Executive Order signed by President Nixon. This Executive Order created the Office of Minority Business Enterprise and the Advisory Council for Minority Business Enterprise. In the inaugural year of the program, these agencies partnered with the Census Bureau to survey Minority-Owned Business Enterprises across the U.S.. Sparked by the first Executive Order, numerous Executive Orders followed that expanded and developed the Minority Business Enterprise program and the supporting organizations. Today, the Minority Business Enterprise Program is led by the Minority Business Development Agency. Additionally, minority owned companies must now go through a thorough certification process to operate under the title of MBE and participate in the resulting benefits. Additionally, the MBDA and Census Bureau continue to partner in studying the development of minority-owned businesses. A recent study by the MBDA and the U.S. Census Bureau was performed in 2010.

Note: Due to the increasing cost of independent certification for a MBE startup, up to $2500.00 or more, we (along with numerous other companies) now provide completely free and thorough in-house vetting and certification of all MBE Candidate Companies as a part of participation in our Express Auctioneers Preferred Reseller Program. Normally certification for state programs are free.  Affidavits of certification are available upon request.
