What you should know about MWBE 

The Minority Women Business Enterprise (MWBE) program prioritizes minority and women-owned businesses for procurement for contracts with city and state government and many publicly-traded companies, as well as many additional benefits.

Do you know how to get certified and, once certified, get more of the contracts you qualify for?

Increase your chances of success and start winning contracts by joining New York Women in Business,  directors of public agencies from city and state government and the SBA, and successful small business owners in an informative talk about how contracts are awarded and how to be more likely to win them. And how the opportunities go way beyond construction.

This event is sponsored by NYWIB in collaboration with Accompany Capital and NAWBO.
