How can I certify my business as woman or minority owned?

Certification is a process you can conduct yourself but, your business must be owned and at least 51% controlled by one or more minorities. You should consult your state and local government as they may have different rules or regulations.

The Small Business Administration has a separate certification process for those interested in participating in the Business Development Program.
