Congratulations!! You found the organization to help your business get certified, get suppliers, get funded, get business and get connected.
Headquartered in Houston, the Women's Business Enterprise Alliance (WBEA) serves over 94 counties in Texas with women business enterprise certification, business consultations, training, networking, and recognition designed to spark growth in business sustainability and diverse suppliers. Whether you are a governmental agency, corporation or small business of any size, the WBEA can help your business maximize performance.
Our goal is to develop a diverse supplier pipeline while helping new and existing businesses increase revenue, connection, and receive the financial and training resources needed for maximum growth and sustainability.
To preserve public health and safety, we remain here to serve you remotely while the Women’s Business Enterprise Alliance office is temporarily closed to the public.
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.
