Nationally Certified Women’s Business Enterprise
Our national certification comes through the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). WBENC’s national standard of certification, implemented by the Great Lakes Women’s Business Council, is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business, and an on-site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by a woman, or women. By including women-owned businesses among their providers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity. Please keep us in mind for your projects that may benefit from this certification.

Founded in 1997, WBENC is the nation’s leader in women’s business development and the leading third-party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women, with more than 13,000 certified Women’s Business Enterprises, 14 national Regional Partner Organizations, and over 300 Corporate Members. More than 1,000 corporations representing America’s most prestigious brands as well as many states, cities, and other entities accept WBENC Certification. For more information, visit www.wbenc.org.
