Local Business Marketplaces

Introducing VIT's Local Business Marketplace:
Empowering Local Procurement 

VIT develops Local Business Marketplaces that are designed to cater to buyers who prioritize purchasing from their local markets, whether it be cities, communities, or states. These unique B2B marketplaces exclusively connect buyers with vendors who are local to their region, with a particular focus on MWBE (Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprise) businesses.
