The following is an excerpt from an article about the certification:
Device Pitstop of Maple Grove, a business specializing in buying, selling and repair of computers, smartphones, tablets and game consoles, received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Development Center – Minnesota, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
WBENC’s national standard of certification implemented by the Women’s Business Development Center – Minnesota, is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.
By including women-owned businesses among their vendors, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier/vendor diversity programs.
