Win Fortune 500 Clients through Supplier Diversity

Get your foot in the door with some of America’s top corporations through supplier diversity.

Struggling with getting your foot in the door?

You’re not sure what it is, but it seems like every time you talk with someone from procurement or the supplier diversity program manager at a large corporation, you can never get past the gatekeeper.

You don’t know if it’s you, or if it’s them and they’re just not interested in bringing on a smaller supplier. You know you need to build the right relationships with the right people, but it never fails — it seems like you’re never talking to the right people at the right time.

It’s not you — it’s just a little complicated

Supplier diversity has a long and complicated history, and it can feel daunting when you first embark on becoming a certified minority-owned business and navigating the supplier diversity space. Even the term “supplier diversity” doesn’t sit well with some advocates.

The certification process is already a nightmare and by the time you’re ready to tackle some RFPs, there’s this sense of defeat before you even begin.

We're taking the complication out of it

At Hire Ground, we’re focused on helping diverse suppliers just like you get connected with buyers who actually care about providing a great experience with their suppliers while also building relationships with you and your business.

It’s proven that when everyone values and cares about working with diverse business owners, we all benefit.

Your business grows with a healthy contract from a large client, and they get the benefit of working with a highly-valued provider like yourself.
