“Certification is a stamp of approval. It’s the best marketing tool that a minority/women business can have to accelerate and sustain its success. The primary benefits include access to procurement buyers and contract opportunities, capital, technical assistance and training, financial resources and mentoring.” Anita J. Ponder
