USBLN Now Offers New Two-Year Certification for Disability-Owned Businesses
The Disability:IN recently launched a 2-year certification for all disability-owned business owners.
The USBLN’s decision to expand its nationally recognized certification from one year to two provides a greater value to disability business owners. That means a longer period of time to market and build relationships with Fortune 500 corporate buyers and decision-makers and a reduction in the amount of time and money spent recertifying annually. Now certified suppliers will have more time to focus on growing and expanding their businesses and utilizing resources and tools made available through USBLN’s Disability Supplier Diversity Program (educational scholarships, mentoring, information, and networking).
