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)?

Certification is the cornerstone of WBENC’s CORE platform (Certification, Opportunities, Resources and Engagement). 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.

WBENC's world-class certification is accepted by more than 1,000 corporations representing America's most prestigious brands, in addition to many states, cities and other entities. WBENC is also an approved Third Party Certifier for the United States Small Business Administration (SBA) Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contracting Program.

WBENC Certification validates that the business is 51 percent owned, controlled, operated, and managed by a woman or women. 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.

The value of WBENC certification was the topic of PBS' nationally syndicated "news and views" forum hosted by award-winning journalist Bonnie Erbé, and contributed to by a panel of renowned female leaders. WBENC President and CEO Pamela Prince-Eason led the segment that explained the importance of WBENC and WOSB certification to women's business growth.
