Grow your business faster and learn the steps to certifying your business today.
Did You Know?
The federal government sets aside 5% of its contracts to be awarded to minority and woman owned businesses each year? These types of businesses are classified as
Minority Business Enterprises (MBE) and Woman Business Enterprises (WBE)
Benefits of Being a Minority-Owned and Woman-Owned Business Enterprise
Education & Mentoring
Many certifying agencies offer classes to teach the fundamentals of business and will also put on conferences allowing for business owners to network with each other and much larger corporations.
The Small Business Association even offers a Mentor-Protege program to help you reach your goals.
Contracts & Funding
Similarly to the federal government, many states set aside contracts specifically for women and minority owned companies.
Even large private sector companies seek to work with these businesses as they too understand the value of diversity. Certification also expands the options for private loans through banks and other funding associations.
Get help competing for contracts, networking at conferences, or get paired with a mentor.
This are the perfect opportunities to get your business out there and create connections that will grow your business.
