Building Trusted Networks


DEAL Center Seed Accelerators

Wealth creation requires action, governance and risk.  Our opportunity to become a trillion dollar industry requires inclusion and adhesion to a mission towards continuous profit and success. 

The National Minority Technology Council is developing an open network of place-based and web-based social ecosystems that will provide cohort style memberships based on a selection criterion designed for growth and collaboration.

Public/Private Cooperative Agreements

The concept behind our accelerator initiative is to develop an institutional approach to minority tech company growth in the entrepreneurial ecosystem.   Working with government, education and community,  NMTC plans to generate fixed-term, cohort-based, "boot camps" for emerging business owners. 

The program will include access to subject matter experts, technology, and government/corporate relationships with a defined culmination program to invited key stakeholders.

These trusted "Cohorts of Opportunity" are made up of NMTC members who enjoy access to our resources and growth algorithms.

Access Granted

Creating multiple teaming opportunities for our members.

Connecting Stakeholders who believe in our vision to transform and develop communities enriched by both technology and faith in the human desire to serve.

NMTC SBA GSA Contractor Team Arrangements

Teaming with a Purpose

"Under a Contractor Team Arrangement (CTA), two or more GSA Schedule contractors work together to meet ordering activity needs. By complementing each other's capabilities, the team offers a total solution to the ordering activity's requirement, providing a win-win situation for all parties. "

Building Consensus

An organic “Innovation Community” proof of concept is developing across the country by a set of organizations.

Aligning in part through specific partnership algorithms that couple institutions and people that have an interest in researching, producing and using workforce systems that marry human capital to high growth high demand ICT jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities.

NMTCGrowth Algorithms

Innovation in Motion is part of an industry focused, design based, applied research framework that studies how best systems connect and improve in public good ecosystems. 

Workforce systems are best envisioned with stakeholders including employers. Industry allows for multiple businesses and community partners, all sharing in the outcomes.

Given the great number of Minority Technology Companies (estimated at 65,000 employers with combined annual revenues of $100 Billion), leveraging geography, our joint capacity to scale and our capacity to agree, will ignite new capabilities transforming this already fast-growing marketplace into a powerhouse of job creating opportunities.

The National Minority Technology Council (NMTC) is mission driven to provide our members with the kind business value that increases both profit and success. NMTC’s membership is intentionally diverse and includes government, K12, higher education, non-profits/NGO’s and business large and small with a focus on the Minority Technology Industry.

Accelerating Technology Transfer and Commercialization of Federal Research in Support of High-Growth Minority Businesses

Innovation fuels economic growth, the creation of new industries, companies, jobs, products and services, and the global competitiveness of U.S. industries.  

One driver of successful innovation is technology transfer, in which the private sector adapts public and private research for use in the marketplace.

We must work to systematically increase the number of minority participants getting on the innovation highway and our partnership with the U.S. Department of Commerce is a critical step towards this goal.

Innovation fuels economic growth, the creation of new industries, companies, jobs, products and services, and the global competitiveness of U.S. industries. 

NMTC understands that building a pipeline for minority innovators to gain access to America's pioneering innovation ecosystems is vital and full inclusion is a national economic imperative.

Building Trusted Networks


Community stakeholder agreements are best facilitated through frameworks that are built from evidence-based applied research.

Creating an economic value chain from human capital improvement requires governance, faith and industry input.

Our research was based on the postulate that if we better understood the dynamic relationships among the people and organizations within the system, there could be a framework developed that would increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the system.

The collaborative nature of this research allows NMTC the opportunity to create a common good for employers, employees, government, institutions, community, the nation and our global economic ecosystem.  

Our vision of collaboration ensures an increase in community access to workforce opportunities and resources. We accomplish this by utilizing growth algorithms to increase community economic capacity and education relevance through industry led public-private partnerships and research based cooperative agreements.
