When a career trajectory is at the intersection of Corporate Procurement, Business Development, Minority Business Enterprises (MBE), Government Contracts, and Hispanic Publishing, it delivers Evelyn Lebrón. I invited my dear friend and colleague to I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY to celebrate that she FINALLY decided to dedicate herself full-time to what she loves doing the most: helping entrepreneurs of color enhance their capabilities to land big projects and big money. As the Founder & Chief Procurement Officer of MBE Connection, Evelyn is yet another Black & Brown business owner that is influencing how business gets done in the U.S. However, we still need to know how to navigate the current system and align with processes, requirements, and criteria the government and corporate sectors have outlined as ‘must-haves’ to become qualified suppliers or vendors. And that’s where Evelyn steps in to guide. She shares practical advice for emerging businesses who want to experience positive outcomes sooner rather than later, while we continue to work on changing the system.
