Minnesota also has the Central Certification (CERT) Program which is a small business certification recognized by Hennepin County, Ramsey County, the City of Saint Paul and the City of Minneapolis. The CERT Program includes certification for Minority-Owned Business Enterprise (MBE), Women Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) and the Small Business Enterprise (SBE).
Getting a certification in the State of Minnesota opens the door to targeted government and private contracting opportunities.
