I have recently become a certified assessor with WEConnect International, a corporate-led non-profit that helps build sustainable communities by empowering women business owners to succeed in local and global markets. Since 2009, WEConnect International has provided business education, certification, and business connections to companies based outside the United States that are at least 51 percent owned, managed and controlled by one or more women.
We are seeking new corporate partners (locally and globally) and women in business who wish to be certified and have access and opportunities to compete in a global supply network. To comply the business must be meet the certification eligibility as outlined below:
- 51% owned, managed and controlled by one or more women
- Operate a legally registered business in any sector
- Have the capacity to sell to large corporations and/or the ability to scale operations
- Growth oriented
Certification assures corporate buyers they are purchasing from a female supplier.
