We’re pleased to announce that we have received certification from the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), a leading non-profit organization dedicated to helping women-owned businesses thrive and grow.
We had previously received certification through the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Because we have clients outside of Massachusetts, pursuing this national certification made sense, and we’re honored to be a part of a group of such successful and driven women entrepreneurs.
Benefits of Certification
WBENC certification provides us with access to a vast network of support, including targeted business opportunities and increased visibility in corporate and government supply chains, education and development programs. It is also an approved third-party certifier for the SBA’s Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contracting Program.
WBENC certification validates that a business is at least 51 percent owned, controlled, operated and managed by a woman or women. One or more women must have unrestricted control of the business, a demonstrated management of day-to-day operations and a proportionate investment of capital or expertise. To become certified, business owners undergo a thorough vetting process, including a review of business documentation and a site visit.
