SBE Certification

Small Business Enterprise certification

A Small Business Enterprise certification, or SBE certification, defines your business as being a small business and are usually issued by the local or state government. The certification is generally, gender and ethnicity neutral. If you have a small business, a SBE Certification is a valuable marketing tool for your small business, and can give you special consideration when bidding on contracts with local government. Some states have set-aside contracts so that SBE certified companies can compete as a sub-contractor.  
The SBE certification is non-industry specific. Eligibility for certification as a Small Business Enterprise varies depending on the issuing agency; number of employees, length of time the company has been in business and other specific information.
Organizations wishing to become SBE certified should contact the appropriate government body for their state. The certification process usually involves completing an application and/or completing a registration with the certifying government body. Acquiring the SBE Certification can expose your business to potential new markets and present you with opportunities that haven’t always been open to you. However, preparing for the application and making sure you have everything necessary to put your hat in the ring can be tedious. Rather than doing it on your own, why not have BizCentral USA to assist you. With our help, you can quickly find out whether or not you’re eligible for small business grants, certifications, and job opportunities.
