Get Smart: Deconstructing the MBE, WBE & MWDBE Certification Process

Seeking more business opportunities?

If you’re a woman, minority, or otherwise disadvantaged person who owns a business — or thinking about starting one – consider getting certified as a woman or minority-owned business enterprise, commonly referred to as a MBE, WBE or MWDBE.

Such certification can lead to new contract opportunities from companies and government agencies seeking to diversify their suppliers. The reasons for diversification may vary, but to meet procurement goals, companies and agencies typically seek suppliers who are able to verify their MBE, WBE or MWDBE ownership through a certification process conducted by authorized public and private agencies.
