Minority- and Women-Owned Businesses

Work With Us!

NYSIF encourages participation by New York State Minority- and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (MWBE) in its procurement projects. NYSIF is committed to achieving the statewide goal of increasing opportunities for MWBEs and helping these businesses thrive. NYSIF has established an MWBE participation goal of at least 30 percent for all NYSIF contracts, and has exceeded this goal for the last several years. In addition, NYSIF has instituted an aggressive asset management and financial institution strategy to increase use of MWBE investment and financial services firms.

NYSIF 12th Annual MWBE Investment Symposium

On March 1, 2022, NYSIF hosted its 12th Annual Minority- and Women-Owned Business Enterprises Investment Symposium and strengthened its commitment to expanding opportunities for participation in all areas of its investment portfolio. At the event NYSIF announced it far exceeded its established annual MWBE participation goal of 35% for State Fiscal Year 2020-2021, and will continue to recruit M/WBE financial firms to further increase their participation in 2022 and beyond.
