Time for a change

 

The market is ready for a new way to secure products and services from diverse and small business suppliers. The first conference was in 1979 bringing over 8,000 companies to Dallas, TX. Today, the model has changed very little since the first conference, with rising cost to attend year over year. The business case for supplier diversity remains relevant however, the current model has yet to evolve in a meaningful 21st century way.

Doorways introduces a new model to connect in a meaningful way.

(Supplier & Corporations connect via conferences that
yield slow responses to meeting and connecting with
viable opportunities)

become a certified diverse supplier along with rising
