As an affiliate of the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the WBEA serves as a third-party certifying organization for women-owned business enterprises (WBEs) in south Texas. Businesses that are at least 51% owned by a woman and meet specific criteria as outlined by WBENC standards and procedures are eligible for this certification -- a designation that is not only recognized but required by most major corporations and governmental agencies as a purchasing criterion.
With over 750 certified WBEs, representing 9 billion in revenue and over 40,000 jobs created the WBEA organization has grown rapidly since its inception and has become one of the nation's leading certifiers of women-owned businesses by way of its network of corporate sponsors, supplier diversity programs and dedicated WBE’s.
Headquartered in Houston, the Women's Business Enterprise Alliance serves over 94 counties in Texas with scholarship and mentoring programs, networking activities, and educational opportunities designed to spark growth and new business opportunities for members and their companies. Whether you are a governmental agency, corporation or women-owned business of any size, the WBEA can help you diversify your business.
The Women’s Business Enterprise Alliance is committed to increasing business opportunities for woman-owned businesses and corporate members through education, programs, and professional networking.
WBEA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization who seeks and accepts donations from corporations, foundations and individuals that support its mission and programs.
