Webinar: How to Get Certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE)

March 26 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Happy Women’s History Month!

Becoming certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) is about so much more than being able to attach the colorful “women owned” logo to your business card. It’s about opening up doors to a network of thousands of other women entrepreneurs and hundreds of corporate and government partners looking to work with women-owned businesses.

This webinar is for anyone interested in certification, whether you’re just getting to know us or are already well under way in the process.

We will cover:

  • Why business owners get certified, and which diversity certificate is right for you.
  • eligibility requirements.
  • The process, costs, documents required and what to expect.

WBENC is the largest certifier of women-owned businesses and is recognized by hundreds of major corporations and government agencies with supplier diversity programs. We’ll show you how to gain this prestigious certificate and use it to build your business!
