If you’re not familiar with this term, it means To be considered for a Supplier Diversity Program. You must maintain current certification by an accepted certifying body as a minority or women-owned business enterprise. This process is an accomplishment to achieve and is a lengthy process, in order to get certified. But is so worth it.
Here are some benefits we want to share with you.
- Setting ourselves apart from the competitor.
We have set ourselves apart from our competition. We can help with government contracts and offer a service our competitors can’t.
- Having a sense of Community
Becoming a certified minority-owned business provides you with an entirely new network of people who want to see you succeed. Doors will open with your fellow business owners, large corporations and employee resource groups.
- Opened up Marketing opportunities
It can be used as a marketing opportunity, especially if your business is located in an area where minorities live. Or those who want to support a Minority Business.
- Opening Up More Opportunities
Being certified as a minority-owned business allows you the opportunity to compete for RFPs for which you might not have been considered for. It opens up a world of corporate and government opportunities that, as a boutique company, you would not be exposed to otherwise.
Corporations want to do business with minority-owned businesses because they realize that U.S. minorities have great purchasing power. And needless to say, if they want minorities to purchase their products and services, they have to support their businesses in return.
Federal officials support minority-owned businesses because they realize that by doing so, they will help the country grow a sustainable economic climate.
We hope to work with you and get to know you! Remember who loves you!
