Experienced Lawyers Helping Businesses With Minority Certification
You may be entitled to certain competitive advantages of which you are not currently aware. In order to encourage the growth of historically disadvantaged businesses, the federal and state government permits certain companies and individuals to qualify as a Women Owned Enterprise (WBE), Minority-Owned or Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE), or a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB). If your business qualifies, we can assist you through the certification process.
Achieving A Competitive Business Advantage
Minority certification can give your business an added competitive advantage. The government often has projects that are set aside specifically to award to Disadvantaged Business Enterprises. Contracts for many projects — both public and private — often mandate that a certain percentage of the work be awarded to minority-owned or women-owned businesses.
At the time of business formation, it is a good idea to determine if your business can be organized as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise. While you can make that decision at a later time, it is more efficient to consider the advantages when you are starting your business.
By certifying your business as minority-owned and managed, you can help state and federal governments and other businesses obtain the diversity they need and want on major projects.
