What is the WOSB Certification?
A Women Owned Small Business (WOSB) certification is a powerful marketing tool for female owners of small firms. To qualify for a WOSB Certification, the business must be at least 51% owned and controlled by one or more women, and primarily managed by one or more women who are U.S. citizens.
The SBA recognizes the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council or WBENC as a national certifying body for this important designation. The WEBENC WBE/WOSB certification opens doors to you as a supplier and offers many benefits to women business owners. These include the WEBENC national association with many training, networking, and assistance opportunities for women business owners to learn government marketing and improve their management skills to grow their businesses.
Once a WOSB certification has been granted, a women-owned small business can register on the SBA WOSB repository which directly links their business to government agencies seeking their goods and services. Businesses can also participate in matchmaking events where large corporations come to interview smaller businesses for vendor opportunities.
