Unrestricted by narrow geographical, gender-driven or cultural boundaries, membership with the Alliance exposes business owners to a diverse population of potential clients, partners, and contract opportunities. Members have available to them a full suite of benefits to support business and professional growth through Advisory, Access, and Advocacy.

Advisory - From networking events and professional development workshops to assistance with MWBE certification, the Alliance advisory suite of services is designed to provide our members with the tools to enable growth and support longevity. Our experts and partners have a vested interest in the success of your business.

Access - The Alliance Executive board prides itself in the relationships that it has built with the agencies of New York City as well as local government officials and others with the small business owner in mind. Thoughtful, regularly scheduled dialogue and two communication allow us to share the most up-to-date information and early access to our members.  Be the first to know about opportunities, access to capital, proposed legislation, and more.

Advocacy - The Alliance is the voice of the MWBE. In every meeting, in the smallest of conversations, we are always lead by the interests of the MWBE population. Still, our charge goes further. Our solution-based approach is respected and welcomed and thus attains results. Sometimes it is as simple as connecting a business directly with the right person. Other times require we bring specific concerns, both common and individualized, to the desks of agency leads and city officials. And we get responses - on everything from matters of late payments to system challenges to unfair processes.
