Certified by WEConnect International
Published: October 2, 2023
Today we have joined the 17,000+ female-owned businesses who are globally certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by WEConnect International. ✅
EnterpriseAlumni is not just a women-led and woman-controlled business. It also has a firm commitment to diversity in terms of ownership and is the only Enterprise Software company in the world to have raised investment at scale, with gender balanced shareholders.
Emma Sinclair MBE, our Chief Executive, said “Having founded an enterprise software business, supplier diversity is an issue close to my heart and one I believe should be at the top of the corporate agenda".
Large companies, including many of our customers, are committed to fair and equal opportunities in business. WeConnect help bring this ecosystem together to ensure female led businesses have a seat at the procurement table and help large corporations and organizations achieve the highest possible percentages of diverse spend.
The purpose of WEConnect is to instill confidence that sellers meet buyers’ standards for women-owned businesses. In the US and Australia in particular, parts of the public and private sector have clear targets around awarding contracts to Women’s Business Enterprises. This internationally recognized certificate makes it easier for procurement teams to readily identify eligible candidates during RFP and bid processes.
To secure innovation based economic growth and a broader distribution of opportunities and revenue, large companies need and want to purchase and benefit from innovation to improve and enhance their businesses - and vendors desperately want to sell to this market. We are glad to contribute to this ecosystem and look forward to more conversations with Global Supplier Diversity teams.
Elizabeth Vasquez, CEO and Founder of WeConnect, said: “Nothing gets done quickly working by ourselves. We need each other to accomplish big goals.”
