How Will This Help My Business?

The Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprise Certification Program is a tool that may help a minority or woman-owned business improve its competitiveness.  Once certified, your business can benefit in the following ways:

  • Your business receives free marketing in the Kentucky's Small Business CONNECTion Database.  You can connect with buyers from government agencies and large businesses as well as enhance your business’s exposure to prime vendors and contractors.
  • Certification allows your business to meet “home state certification” requirements for other states.
  • Provides a marketing opportunity for your business. Certification by the program authenticates or validates ownership, management, and control of your business.
