Small Business Trends is a Certified Woman Owned Business

Small Business Trends Media Group, the parent publishing group of SmallBizTrends.com and BizSugar.com, is delighted to enter its second year with “Woman Business Certification” by the State of Florida.

Small Business Trends is a Certified Woman Owned Business

The designation that Small Business Trends is a certified woman owned business comes following an in-depth certification application process through the State of Florida’s Department of Management Services. The certification is awarded to companies that demonstrate they are majority owned and operated by a woman.

“Certification as a woman-owned business is another step in our company’s history and growth,” said Small Business Trends Founder and CEO Anita Campbell.

Applying and meeting the certification requirements took a number of hours, but the State of Florida has streamlined the process to make it as efficient as possible for small business owners.  “Florida is a small-business friendly state. That makes all the difference when it comes to things like certifications and government contracting,” Campbell added.

By including women-owned companies among their vendors, corporations and government entities show their commitment to supporting diversity.
