The Next Phase of Business

Certifications

Becoming a certified firm increases your visibility among consumers and larger organizations. As a business owner, you do not need a certification to prove you are a minority-owned business. But you do need a certification to compete with other certified minority-owned companies on large contracts. We want to help you on your journey to becoming a certified firm!

We offer two certifications for business owners. The first is designed to help consumers support small, minority-owned, women-owned, & lgbtq+ owned, businesses throughout the State of Ohio! The second is for companies that intend to perform government work or corporate work. 

We offer two certification processes:

  • Business to Consumers (B2C) path (designed for businesses that do not intend to do business with the government). The certification process takes up to 30 days.

 

  • Business to Government (B2G) path (designed for businesses that want also to get certified in government programs). The certification process is designed to ensure you are eligible for government programs.
