Beyond Spots & Dots Certified as Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC)

Monday, September 17, 2018


Beyond Spots & Dots has received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

To receive this designation, businesses must be at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. The WBENC certifies businesses only after a rigorous process, including an in-depth review of the business owner’s eligibility, financial structure, management and governance information, corporate documentation, an on-site inspection as well as an interview with the female owner(s). 

A WBE certification allows businesses to access WBENC National Corporate Members, numerous local, state and federal agencies, and over 10,000 other certified WBEs. This access allows certified WBEs to purchase products, enlist services, and/or embark on joint venture enterprises.

“We are delighted to be recognized. To have these credentials means we can compete and do additional business with other WBENC-Certified companies, corporations and government entities. More importantly, Beyond Spots & Dots can continue to expand and grow as a women-owned enterprise,” said Melanie Querry, Founder and President of Beyond Spots & Dots.
