Register and Certify

FEBRUARY 07, 2016

D2D encourages Detroit-based businesses to make yourself known — and more Buyer Ready by registering and certifying.

Start by registering in the Pure Michigan Business Connect database — which lists thousands of buyers and suppliers across Michigan. You might go looking for new customers, but you might also find new suppliers for your company right here in Detroit. To get started, use this link: http://www.d2dbusinessdatabase.org/

The City of Detroit and other large purchasing organizations encourage purchases from qualified and certified Detroit-based businesses. Apply for certification on the City of Detroit’s website. Find information in this Application for Certification

Many large purchasing organizations recognize the value in developing a diverse supplier base. If yours is a minority-owned business, consider applying for certification from the Michigan Minority Supplier Development Council (MMSDC). More information is a available on the MMSDC website: http://minoritysupplier.org/membership/mbe-certification/benefits-of-mbe-certification/
