Cost: FREE, Pre-registration recommended, Minority/Women/Disadvantaged Business Certification for Government Contracting Advantages: Minority-owned business enterprise (MBE), women-owned business enterprise (WBE) and disadvantaged business enterprise (DBE - veterans and others)--do you understand these terms? With MBE, WBE, or DBE certification, you could benefit by contracting with local, state and federal governments, but the process can be confusing and lengthy. Is certification right for you? Does your ownership structure qualify? Is your product or service right for large corporations and government agencies? Do you have the necessary working capital and infrastructure? Entities seek out certified vendors to diversify their supplier base. Certification is an inexpensive and effective marketing tool, but it is vitally important to structure your business correctly and that your documents are written properly. If structured and operated correctly, you can be certified and secure lucrative government contracts. If not, you will be disqualified. This seminar will help you understand the entire certification process and timeframe
