In today’s highly competitive market, it’s important for small businesses to set themselves apart in the marketplace, add established credibility, and have better access to contracting opportunities.

On Tuesday, November 15, 2022 the Boston Local Development Corporation (BLDC) and the Transactional Law Clinics (TLC) of Harvard Law School presented Diversity Business Certifications at the Local, State and Federal Level.

We introduced business owners to the process of applying and obtaining business certification at the local, state, and/or federal level, such as Women Business Enterprise (WBE), Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB) and others. The presentation includes details on the types of certifications, benefits, requirements, process, and answers to questions that frequently arise.
