Harborside Advisors, LLC is a certified Women’s Business Enterprise Council (WBENC) and Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB).
The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) is the largest certifier of women-owned businesses in the U.S. and a leading advocate for women business owners and entrepreneurs. We believe diversity promotes innovation, opens doors, and creates partnerships that fuel the economy. That’s why we provide the most relied upon certification standard for women-owned businesses and the tools to help them succeed.
The WOSB Federal Contract Program was implemented in February 2011 with the goal of expanding opportunities for WOSBs to win Federal contracts by providing a level playing field for WOSBs to compete. It is also intended to assist Federal agencies to meet the contracting goals for WOSBs. The Program allows WOSBs to compete for set-aside contracts or receive sole source awards in industries where women-owned small businesses are substantially underrepresented. It also enables Economically Disadvantaged WOSBs (EDWOSBs) to compete for set-aside contracts or receive sole source awards in industries where women-owned small businesses are underrepresented. SBA is responsible for implementing and administering the Program.
