Diverse Business Certification

Our diverse business certification services will assist your company with completing and submitting your business certification application.  Doing business as a diverse business owner, having that official certification will enable you to compete for mandated set-aside funds and jobs of a particular group (small, disadvantaged, woman-owned, and minority-owned) as well as participate in supplier diversity programs. We take the pain out of the process for you, allowing you to create a Competitive Advantage in the marketplace.

If you are a minority-owned enterprise (MBE) or a woman-owned enterprise (WBE) and not yet Certified, you may be missing out on potential opportunities for your business. Although being certified will not automatically "grant" you contracts however, it can provide you with a great tool and resources for business opportunities in private, public and government procurement.  

  • Being certified offers a seal of approval, displaying that a company's claim of being a minority or woman-owned enterprise (M/WBE) has been reviewed and verified by a third-party organization, with this, it creates a win-win situation for both organizations.
  • Government agencies and corporations are looking to do business with disadvanted, minority & woman owned businesses. Matter of fact, many have percentages or "set asides" in their budgets to purchase products and services from Certified D/W/MBE's; with Minority Certification (D/W/MBE) you have added a very beneficial tool to your organization for increased business opportunities.
  • Many organization now require a third-party certification to be able to work directly with their supplier diversity team.  Having a supplier diversity team working with you on new opportunties, championing for you and your business, something all diverse business owners should participate in.

Don't get left behind in this competitive marketplace!  There are many great benefits to becoming a Certified minority business enterprise, and we are here to assist you every step of the way from determining which certification would be best for your business to the "I'm Certified, now what?"

Programs we provide application assistance for:

Woman Business Enterprise (WBE)

Minority Business Enterprise (MBE)

Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)

Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB)

Note: Self-certification in the Systems for Award Management (SAM) system is not the same as an official certified/awarded certification from the certifying agency. A self-certification does not enable you to participate in the set-aside contracts.

  • *Disclaimer*: Our organization can not guarantee certification, as the determination is based upon meeting the requirements set forth by the certifying agency.
