How and Why be a Certified Woman Minority Owned Business (WMBE) and DBE

I want to work on City Projects - Help me get started!


One important step that I took for my business last year was getting my Woman Minority Owned and Disadvantage Business Enterprise certifications. I would like to share my experience on how to get the certification and why I did it. This is a great program and City of Austin Small Minority Business Resources (SMBR) Representatives will also be there to answer your questions.


If you have any interest in becoming a City Vendor, this is the session for you!
