Founded in 1997, the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) is the largest third-party certifier of businesses owned controlled, and operated by women in the United States.  It is one of the most highly coveted, respected and recognized certifications in the country.

WBENC issues a Gold Standard, national certification to women owned businesses to ensure a qualified database of WBENC Certified Women’s Business Enterprises (WBEs).  WBENC Certification verifies that businesses are majority owned, and entirely controlled, operated, and managed by a woman or women. Nearly 800 of the Fortune 1000 Corporations require that a woman-owned business be WBENC certified before providing access to their supplier diversity programs.

Many major national corporations, including WBENC National Corporate Members, and federal, state and local government entities actively seeking to conduct business with a woman/women owned business(es) look to Women’s Business Enterprise National Council to identify them. In addition to being afforded myriad business opportunities, WBENC Certified WBEs also have access to mentoring, education and capacity development. There are over 10,000 WBENC certified women-owned businesses nationwide.
