  • We started in 1998 – it is a journeyNeed to understand what is an SME/diverse supplier?What are the goals/Targets? Is this by industry ?New Business ventures and expansion into the emerging markets are driving corporate procurement requirements – Consolidation of supply base can change due to local market needs etcSmall Business tech boot camps Intel Capital – Technology map daysInclude other large techs and take companies we are investing in and help them access big corporationsWork with NGO’s We Connect, She Business, National Minority Supplier Development council, National gay and lesbian chamber of commerce – 3 of these Intel is a co-founding member.Mentor suppliers and work with improving their business
  • Design print company who is a small business and a diverse supplier started as a pure print collatoral supplier – once they proved themselves moved onto doing our some of our product printing and now are doing internet media and apps thus growing their capabilities along with their size and revenue. We also invested in their CEO and sponsored a business education opportunity to help further develop their capabilities.WOBI – looking at investing more in our WBE – up to approx 5% by 2020. This is an Intel foundation initiative to include women and girls in the technology sector of business. Did you know that by 2015 women would represent 40% of the paid workforce but only 1% of the wealth. Women own 40% of private businesses in the US but they create only 8% of the venture-backed tech startups. Women’s ability to access income, technology, and paid work has a greater improvement in children’s welfare (vs. men).As we formulate our strategy on doing this we have come up against an number of roadblocks which run across both SMEs and diverse suppliers – the identification process of these organisations. While working within the EU privacy laws it is still hard to understand the true number of Women owned biz or for that case SMEs internationally as many countries do not have a certification process or do not have a definition of what these are. Along with the fact that we are also working out a further mentoring program to ensure these businesses are at a level playing field when they come in to bid for the Intel business.Intel capital group have agreed to partner with us to invest in tech WBEs limited knowledge and cost with certification – government needs to help sponsor the USSBA program – similar way and cost is minimal – No std in EMEA
  • US regulators have helped us focus on diversity along with investors, customers etc thus as regulators have an opportunity to focus the minds of industry on SME
  • Consolidation often flies in the face of Innovation and often comes from our Niche suppliers/SMEs verse the large corps – due to agility and typically more specialised.
