Expanding Reach-Collaboration will form new Missouri business publication

Indiana Minority Business Magazine (IMBM) and Mid-States Minority Supplier Development Council (Mid-States MSDC) have joined forces to publish the Missouri Minority Business Magazine, an online publication that will serve the business communities of Missouri.

IMBM is Indiana’s only business magazine that is inclusive of all minorities. The quarterly publication focuses on business, lifestyle and diversity and is distributed throughout Indiana. At 9 years old, IMBM is the sister publication of the historic Indianapolis Recorder Newspaper.

Mid-States MSDC, formerly Indiana Minority Supplier Development Council, serves as an advocate for the economic well-being and growth of certified MBEs (Minority Business Enterprises), while also providing a direct connection for corporations committed to purchasing products and services from certified MBEs.

“At the core, our respective entities focus on educating, cultivating and promoting minority professionals,” said IMBM President Shannon Williams. “With such a shared mission, this partnership made perfect sense. The Missouri Minority Business Magazine is a great way to expand our brand in another state, while also enhancing the work of the Council and everything it does throughout the region.”

Mid-States MSDC is an affiliate of the National Minority Supplier Development CouncilIts territory includes Central Illinois, Indiana and Eastern Missouri. Carolyn Mosby, president of Mid-States MSDC says Missouri’s business landscape is an opportune market for the Missouri Minority Business Magazine.

“Missouri has a plethora of minority businesses – some which lead the country in their specific industries. Producing the Missouri Minority Business Magazine is an outstanding way to promote these businesses. My team and I are really excited about the tremendous possibilities this collaboration presents,” said Mosby.

The Missouri Minority Business Magazine will officially launch soon.
