If you are a woman or minority owned business, doing business with federal, state and local governments is an excellent opportunity to grow your business.

Those opportunities require businesses certification which you can apply for using one of the certifying agencies below.

The Enterprise Center provides Minority, Women, and/or Disabled Business Enterprise (M/W/DSBE) certification services for the City of Philadelphia's Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO). City departments give priority to businesses in the OEO registry when purchasing goods and services.

Contact the Enterprise Center to learn more and inquire about their other programs related to bidding and contracts.
