Small and Diverse Business Partner

At Best Buy, we believe that equal opportunities for all suppliers increases competition, facilitates customer loyalty and aligns with our business strategy. It is our policy to promote and provide equal opportunities to small and diverse suppliers while ensuring that we receive the highest quality products and services at the greatest value.

Inclusion and diversity are the heart and soul of Best Buy.


We are committed to creating equal opportunities for small and diverse suppliers in the tech industry. This committment includes all forms of spending in nearly every area of the company – from how we bring in goods and services to stores, to our information technology, to where and how we advertise.

In addition to the financial investments, Best Buy will support the growth of small businesses by providing access to our retail capabilities such as supply chain, sourcing and product development. To ensure equal opportunities for small and diverse businesses and suppliers, we will continue to create and build partnerships with colleges and universities and various community organizations.
