In recognition of the economic power of privately held businesses, DiversityBusiness.com, the nation’s leading business-to-business internet site, recently named Etech one of the “Top 50 Minority Owned Businesses in the State of Texas”
This is the 9th annual listing of the top businesses by DiversityBusiness.com. Companies listed on the Top Business Lists represent the nation’s top multicultural earners and challenge the long-held notion that a privately held business is small or insignificant. Companies recognized on this list are sought after by major corporations wishing to increase their spending with small businesses.
“Entrepreneurs are a growing force in the U.S. economy, and a force to be reckoned with,” said Kenton Clarke, CEO of Computer Consulting Associates International, the company that built DiversityBusiness.com. Entrepreneurs represent a growing business sector that carries its own, provides jobs, products and services, and generates wealth for its communities. Entrepreneurs are the new leaders in American business.
Matt Rocco, Chief Operating Officer for Etech stated, “DiversityBusiness.com has a long standing history of making sure that entrepreneurial businesses are being given opportunities to compete fairly in the marketplace. Their recognition of Etech as a top business is affirmation that we are doing many things the right way. We are both excited and humbled by this recognition.”
The List This list includes the top small businesses in the U.S. in sectors such as technology, manufacturing, food service and professional services. Large organizational buyers throughout the country that do business with multicultural, small and women-owned businesses use this list to find potential business partners.
The winning companies will be honored at a special awards ceremony at DiversityBusiness.com’s “9th Annual Multicultural Business Conference”, taking place April 29 – May 1, 2009 at the Disney’s Contemporary Resort in Orlando, Florida.
