Séura receives state certification as woman-owned business enterprise

Séura is now certified as a Woman-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE) through the State of Wisconsin Department of Administration. The certification validates that Séura meets the requirements of being at least 51 percent woman-owned, controlled and managed.

The Women’s Business Enterprise Council implements a research process to evaluate business applicants seeking certification to ensure requirements are met. The process includes interviews with company personnel, an on-site visit and an in-depth review of company financials, legal documents and other factors.

This certification qualifies Séura to be considered for contracts with corporations and government entities that seek vendor relationships with businesses owned and operated by women. The State of Wisconsin maintains an online WBE Directory to further promote state certified woman-owned businesses to potential buyers and business partners.
