How can we help you today?
Need help with your M/WBE Certification Application?
For businesses who don't have the time or desire to deal with the M/WBE Certification process but knows how important getting certified is - we've created a system that can help you.
Our team uses our experience and connections to help you put together your application and supporting documents.
We often catch application and/or document errors before we submit your application which many times minimizes the back and forth correspondence with Small Business Services (SBS - NYC agency that approves your application).
And if there are questions SBS - we're there to help you get what's needed to have your M/WBE certification approved.
Need help getting the most from your M/WBE Certification?
NYC has over 100 agencies who are constantly posting new opportunities for M/WBE certified companies.
The first step in using your M/WBE Certification to get contract opportunities with NYC and/or Prime Contractors is MARKETING.
This is a relationship business. And if people with opportunities don't know about you then they are most likely not going to contact you when your assistance is needed.
