Certifying woman-owned business
Why should I go to the trouble to certify my woman-owned business?
Being a certified woman-owned business can get you business. According to a recent survey by the Center for Women's Business Research:
- 79% of corporations have policies to promote purchasing from certified Women's Business Enterprises (WBEs).
- 38% of corporations require bids from at least one certified WBE.
- 44% of WBEs say that certification was helpful in getting business with corporations.
- 56% of WBEs say that certification made a positive difference in finalizing a contract.
