Celebrating our 300th Certification with over 100 companies, just like yours!
Have you been asked by your clients or prospects "Do you have a Woman Owned Business Certification?" or "Are you Certified as a Minority Business Enterprise?"
Certification must make sense for your company as it is an investment in your success. Some questions to ask are:
How much revenue is generated by customers who want you to be certified? Will that increase with a certification?
Are prospective customers asking if you are certified?
Are you losing contracts because you are not certified?
Are you competing in a market where you are the only woman or minority service providing services?
If the answer is to any of these is "Yes", you should strongly consider certification!
