Creating opportunities for women-owned businesses is central to WBENC's mission. As a certified women's business enterprise (WBE), your company has access to WBENC's and the Women's Business Enterprise Council's PA-DE-sNJ (WBEC) programs and services designed with your business goals in mind.
WBENCLink Database - www.wbenclink.org
As a WBENC WBE, you have access to WBENCLink, the online national database of certified women's business enterprises. WBENCLink is made available to WBENC corporate members and certified Women's Business Enterprises. This is an online database that can only be accessed through the Internet. On WBENCLink, you can update any changes to your company and also apply for recertification. Certification lasts for one year. It is your responsibility to maintain your certification by completing the online recertification application 120 days prior to your certification expiration date.
