Are you looking for a way to promote your company to major corporations that are actively seeking to conduct business with a woman/women owned business(es)? The Michigan Women’s Business Council wants to help you learn about the benefits and process of becoming a Women’s Business Enterprise.
“Certification is one of WBENC’s three core values: Certification, Opportunities, and Resources. Certifying women owned businesses is the foundation of WBENC’s mission, along with connecting WBENC-Certified Women’s Business Enterprises (WBEs) with WBENC’s Corporate Members to facilitate real time business opportunities and serving as a Resource to offer training that helps the Corporate Member and the WBENC-Certified WBE grow their capacity.
To achieve WBENC Certification, women owned businesses complete a formal documentation and site visit process which is administered by one of WBENC’s 14 Regional Partner Organizations. WBENC Certification gives women owned businesses the ability to compete for real-time business opportunities provided by WBENC Corporate Members and government agencies.” -WBENC
