Surety Bonding

Understanding the World of Surety Bonding

MBDI was launched specifically to prepare MWBE construction contractors to become surety bond-ready, grow sustainably through systemic change, and become prime contractors.

Many government construction agencies and private developers require that contractors be "surety bonded" in order to participate on their projects. A surety bond is a rigorously underwritten credit-based product requiring that a business demonstrate capacity and excellent financial presentation to qualify. more

Minority Business Development Institute

The Minority Business Development Institute (MBDI) is an innovative, community-based, non-profit organization born out of a passionate desire to "change the paradigm" of economic inequality for the minority, veteran and women contractor community.1 We help to position minority firms to become credit worthy and therefore bondable, providing an effective response to the lack of capital that has historically limited MBE opportunities and growth.2 Minority and veteran-owned small businesses hold vast opportunity for advancement. The MBDI team's financial, legal and surety industry experience equips it to provide emerging contractors direct services, technical support and clearly defined road maps to success.
