Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week is a national observance that recognizes the outstanding achievements of Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs). The event also honors corporations and financial institutions that support minority business development. MED Week was proclaimed by the U.S president in 1983.

This year’s 38th annual Philadelphia MED Week will equip diverse minority-owned businesses with resources and connections to help them grow. Throughout the week, organizations from across the region will host hybrid networking events, panel discussions, and workshops focused on this year’s theme: Forging the Future: Growing Generational Wealth – “This is How We Do It!”

Business owners are the heartbeat of Philadelphia’s economy. Join us as we forge the future and support minority-owned businesses with equitable capacity-building efforts!
