Getting the Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Certification (WBC 8/8/22)

August 8 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Duration: 1 hour

Join us to learn how to obtain the WOSB (Women-Owned Small Business) certification. This certification was created by the Small Business Administration to help provide a level playing field for women business owners, as it makes a business eligible to compete for federal contracts set aside specifically for businesses with this certification. These contracts are for specific industries where WOSBs are underrepresented. Some contracts are restricted further to economically disadvantaged women-owned small businesses (EDWOSBs). SBA maintains a list of those eligible industries and their NAICS codes.
We will go over the eligibility requirements, getting certified, and maintaining the certification.

There is a new way to register! You can now register using your client profile. By setting up a client profile, you will not have to fill out the same personal information for each workshop you register for, making it faster and easier in the long run! 

a)  If you already have a Client Portal Profile, click the Register button below.

  • In the Client Portal, go to the Calendar tab (top left) and select Getting the Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Certification (WBC 8/8/22), click enroll, answer the questions, and submit! You will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom link.

b) If you don’t have a Client Portal profile, create one at this link. Make sure to use the same email address you have used in the past with Renaissance. You may change it later, but this allows our system to recognize you. 

If you already have an intake form on file, you’ll see the Calendar tab in the top left.

If you do not, you will need to fill one out before you can see the Calendar tab. It may also ask you to update your information.  The user interface isn’t perfect, so make sure to scroll up and keep clicking “Continue” or “Sign” in order to complete the forms. If you have any problems during this, please contact Isla Covarrubias at wbc@rencenter.org.
