Why become a Corporate Partner?
Join VisionReady in creating an environment of opportunity for diverse companies. VisionReady encourages all companies to take advantage of resources to connect, network, deliver, and/or improve their Diversity programs.
A diversity initiative has at least one individual dedicated to proactively promoting MBOs’ product and service capabilities to your supply chain management or purchasing organization. The Corporation will have the tools to track and record spend that will allow the diversity lead to knowledgeably set spend goals and determine capacity development needs all on VisionReady Marketplace.
To become a VisionReady partner, a corporation, government agency, and non-profit organizations must have an interest in a diversity program. The entity must be tracking spend with diverse vendors.
We strive for excellence and have made this opportunity affordable by not charging high fees as we value our corporations.
