Women’s Business Enterprises

Owned by Women

Entities that are at least 51% owned and/or controlled by women (under the 10% and 8% statutes). Women are deemed to be socially and economically disadvantaged individuals, so a woman owned business also qualifies as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise and can certify as one. There are several agencies nationally that certify agencies as Women’s Business Enterprises including the Women's Business Enterprise National Council..
