Certification and membership in the The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) is a ‘must have’ for women business owners.
Why Get the Certification?
Being WBENC certified is a guarantee that your business is woman-owned, which helps to gain competitive advantage with those looking for supplier diversity.
Plus, you can reap additional benefits by taking your certification one step further. In this video I discuss the importance of being a certified member of WBENC and how to use your certification to your company’s advantage.
Benefits of Being WBENC Certified
In a nutshell, the following are just some of the benefits of being WBENC certified:
- WBENC provides opportunities to make connections with people who can mentor and encourage you, and who can help your business grow.
- WBENC offers women-owned businesses the opportunity to make nationwide connections and build relationships with decision makers you wouldn’t normally have access to.
- Being WBENC certified also qualifies women-owned businesses for added access to other organizations.
These benefits will result in more opportunities and a competitive advantage in the marketplace. This in turn will help your business enjoy increased growth and success.
A lot of business owners focus on the results and neglect building the relationships that grant them opportunities to grow as a business. It makes sense to get certified, but you have to be ready to put in the effort in order to reap the rewards.
