Choosing a certifying organization

Question
Which organization should I use to certify my woman-owned business? 
Answer
In addition to The Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), there are a host of organizations in the U.S. that certify women-owned businesses, so it's critical to understand if the corporations or governmental entities you are interested in require a specific certification.

As the largest third-party certifying organization in the United States, WBENC recognized by more than 600 major corporations, as well as many federal and government agencies.
