A client recently called with a question regarding obtaining a small business certification in order to maintain a key piece of business. Read what the client had to say after following up on the information provided by one of our counselors:
We spoke by phone last week concerning obtaining a WBE certification for my business.
Since I sell online to Home Depot, they are requiring this cert due to their initiatives to do business with diverse small businesses.
Thank you for suggesting OSMBA.sc.gov I was able to apply in the Columbia office and will be having a site visit today, as they are not too busy due to the time of year. Previously I had a cert but let it lapse, due to the cost. The OSMBA WBE cert is no charge, and if all goes well, I will have the cert in my hands this week.
Thank you for the knowledge to help me speed up and economize on my business expenses.
