Home How We Help Access to Markets & Opportunities Become Certified

Become Certified


Certification can be a powerful tool for your small business. Whether you are working in the private sector or doing business at the local, state, or federal level, certification can provide you with the means to access a broader customer base.

While we are not a certifying body, we do provide certification packaging as a paid service. We have relationships with certifying bodies such as the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) and the Women’s Business Enterprise Council, and we have assisted clients in certifying and doing business at all levels of government and private enterprise.

We currently provide counseling and assistance on all of the following certifications:

  • Minority Business Enterprise (MBE)
  • Women Business Enterprise (WBE)
  • Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)
  • City of Atlanta Certifications
  • Local Small Business Enterprise (LSBE)
  • Federal Certifications
    • Small Business (SBE)
    • 8(a)
    • Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB)
    • Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB)
    • Women Owned Small Business (WOSB)
    • Economically Disadvantaged Women Owned Small Business (EDWOB)

Pricing for certification packaging depends on the type of certification you are seeking. For more information, contact Lauren Roberts at lauren.roberts@innovate.gatech.edu
