SOUTHPORT, CT, November 1, 2005 / DiversityBusiness- the nations' leading multicultural business internet site, today announced the Div500, the 6th annual listing of the nations' top 500 diversity-owned businesses. Ranging in revenue size from $20 million to over $2 billion, the companies listed on the Div500 represent the nations' top multicultural earners and challenge the long-held notion that diversity-owned businesses are small or insignificant.
