Diverse Business Enterprise Certifications

Diverse Business Enterprise Certifications

The Grand Rapids Chamber’s Diverse Business Enterprise certification program is the only West Michigan certification program offered to minority, veteran, women, and LGBTQIA+ owned businesses. Certifications are provided to increase transparency and to create opportunities for procurement with supplier diversity programs with the area’s largest companies.

The certification of diverse-owned businesses gives West Michigan organizations a competitive advantage when working with the greater business community without additional barriers such as pending citizenship status or access to capital. The process will be the first step to other certifications outside of our jurisdictions.

Having the support and approval of the Grand Rapids Chamber will give these businesses a competitive edge when bidding for contracts with local companies.
