Let’s hear it for woman power and supplier diversity! We are proud to announce that Rapunzel Creative Marketing has received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). WBENC is the nation’s largest third-party certifier of businesses owned and operated by women in the United States.
This designation opens new doors of opportunity for our NJ marketing agency to bid on projects for government entities and help companies and government agencies further diversify their vendor lists. Now, when contracts for marketing and branding services come up for bid from municipalities and public sector agencies, Rapunzel Creative can participate in the bidding process as a certified woman-owned business in the State of New Jersey.
We’re doubly thrilled since WBENC is approved by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) as a third-party certifier for Women Owned Small Business certifications under the SBA’s WOSB Federal Contracting Program; this enables Rapunzel Marketing to also bid on federal contracts for our marketing communications, branding and advertising projects.
Heck, let’s go for triple thrilled and here’s why: there are many corporations that seek to open their bidding process to more woman-owned businesses; this WBE certification puts Rapunzel on the list of vendors who meet this criterion, so we have the potential to share our marketing and branding expertise with even more companies.
It took a lot of paperwork and documentation for Rapunzel Creative Marketing to make it to the WBENC finish line. The organization has a very meticulous and rigorous certification process which is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated andcontrolled by a woman or women. It was well worth the effort, as we now get a seat at more figurative tables, able to bid on work with state and local governments in addition to corporations who appreciate supplier diversity.
