HOW DO I BECOME A CERTIFIED WOMAN-OWNED BUSINESS?
Discover advantages for women entrepreneurs
M&T Bank can help you simplify the women-owned business certification process.
Certification means opportunities
If your business is woman-owned and -operated, you could access a range of advantages. The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) aims to award at least 5 percent of federal contracting dollars to certified women-owned small businesses (WOSB) each year. And you can become Women Business Enterprise (WBE) certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, which provides an extensive network of support, education programs, mentorship opportunities and increased visibility in corporate and government supply chains. M&T has the resources to make it easy for you to register with these key organizations.
