Saint Louis, Missouri—digital partners incorporated (dpi), a Managed Service Provider (MSP) and Value-Added Reseller, is proud to announce national re-certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Development Center (WBDC-Midwest), a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). WBENC Certification is the gold standard for women-owned business certification in the United States.
“We are proud to be certified by WBENC. This certification is a testament to our commitment to excellence and our dedication to providing our customers with the best possible service. WBENC Certification also opens up new opportunities for us to grow our business and to make a positive impact on the community. We are excited to be a part of the WBENC network and to help other women-owned businesses succeed in the tech industry.” – Matina Koronis- dpi CEO.
The WBENC standard of certification implemented by the WBDC-Midwest is a meticulous process, including an in-depth review of the business and a site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by a woman or women, and that the business has appropriate structure and strategic business planning and implementation in place.
By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs, which in turn empowers women as leaders and brings about a more diverse, balanced and sustainable economy.
WBENC Certification combined with professional development and engagement in the WBENC network provides unsurpassed opportunities year-round, both virtually and in-person, for women-owned businesses to grow and expand their business and innovation through events, programming and connections with major corporations and other WBEs.
