Columbus, OH, January 31, 2018 – Grubb Wealth Management announced today that firm founder, Molly Grubb, AIF® has received the WBENC certification for women-owned businesses from the Womens Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
The WBENC certification for women-owned businesses is one of the most widely recognized and respected certifications in the nation. Accepted by hundreds of corporations within the country and a number of federal, state, and local government agencies, WBENC certification is an important marketing tool for expanding a company’s visibility among decision makers in corporate supply chain diversity and procurement organizations.
“The WBENC credential is very important to us. It allows us to be surrounded by other like-minded women who are trying to empower each other,” said Grubb. ”It’s a fantastic way to show other women how to run a well-managed business and how to learn from each other.”
Research shows that only 2 percent of women-owned businesses have revenue of over $1 million. “That’s way too low,” added Grubb. “The more that women business owners can work together, the easier it will be to overcome hurdles that are preventing them from building enterprises larger than $1 million.”
WBENC’s world-class certification is accepted by more than 1,000 corporations representing America’s most prestigious brands, in addition to many states, cities and other entities. WBENC is also an approved Third Party Certifier for the United States Small Business Administration (SBA) Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contracting Program.
“The certification process can reveal important gaps in a women-owned business—and remedies to fix those gaps,” observed Grubb. “WBENC also gives women business owners access to a deep network of people and resources that will put them on a clear path to being more successful. We’re very proud to be part of this program and movement.”
