Women, Minority and Small Business Enterprises

In conjunction with the City of Cincinnati Department of Economic Inclusion we work to identify opportunities for minority business enterprises (MBE), small business enterprises (SBE), and women business enterprises to do business with the City.
The Department of Economic Inclusion has created a certification process to ensure that these enterprise groups can participate in as many projects as possible; not just as subcontractors, but as prime contractors.
Certification Types Include:
  • Banks Small Business Enterprise (For projects located in the Banks only)
  • Emerging Local Business Enterprise
  • Minority Business Enterprise
  • Minority Women Business Enterprise
  • Small Business Enterprise (SBE)
  • Small Local Business Enterprise (SLBE)
  • Women Business Enterprise (WBE)
