There are many incentives for a business or nonprofit to work with minority owned businesses. An increasing number of organizations have requirements to utilize such business for a certain percentage of their outside contracting. It is also possible to receive tax incentives for utilizing minority owned businesses.(1)
We here at Redstart Creative are very excited to have received our new certifications as a Minority Owned Business Enterprise (MBE) from the State of Maryland and a Women Owned Small Business (EDWOSB) from the Federal Government. Redstart Creative’s North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code for graphic design services is 54130.
With these two certifications, Redstart Creative can now help clients fulfill minority participation in federal, state, and local government projects. We can also now fill the requirements outlined above to use a certain amount of certified companies. We hope whether you are currently a client or considering our services for a future project, you will keep these certifications in mind.
Of course if you have any questions about these certifications, please give us a call at 443-798-2773. We would be happy to discuss how they can benefit your business or organization.
