We certify disability-owned business enterprises, including service-disabled veteran owned businesses, and link them to organizations seeking to diversify their supply chains.


A disability-owned business enterprise is a for profit business that is at least 51% owned, managed and controlled by a person with a disability. We do not certify non-profit organizations or private businesses who employ person(s) with disabilities.

DOBE Spotlight

Because of my ADHD and partial deafness, I know I have my own challenges. But I didn’t know I would qualify. However, being certified has granted us access to various corporate leaders, which has been truly phenomenal and influential in helping us to strategically grow our business and achieve our mission.
