Supplier Development Academy

Small and Diverse businesses registered with Supplier Connection now have an opportunity to differentiate themselves to prospective buyers by participating in Supplier Development Academy.


Supplier Development Academy helps small and diverse businesses navigate the procurement processes used by large buying organizations. The goal is to shorten the time it takes to go from contact to consideration for a bid. Courses are delivered both online and through regional face-to-face events offered by Regional Growth Partners. Browse available courses below and check back often for updates.

Suppliers who complete the coursework earn badges that appear on their supplier profiles. When prospective buyers see these badges, they recognize that these suppliers have improved their ability to move through the due diligence process and are reassured of the supplier’s commitment to working with large firms.
