Lourdes Zapata, ‎Executive Vice President, Division of Minority & Women’s Business Development at Empire State Development, spoke at yesterday’s MWBE Expo of Central New York. The event was held at the South Side Innovation Center.

New York is slated for plenty of redevelopment, including airports, transportation hubs, tourism/welcome centers, as well as clean energy initiatives, in nearly every part of the state. All these projects are scheduled to be assessed for minority and women business (MWB) goal settings.

Zapata told a room full of either certified or aspiring minority and women business firms to pay attention to these types of projects because “these are where the opportunities are coming in the future.”
