Certification Partner, WEConnect International in the Netherlands
In the Netherlands, women's business enterprises that are at least 51% owned, managed, and controlled by one or more women may self-register with WEConnect International . Self-registration is a unique opportunity for women business owners to enter the WEConnect International eNetwork and partner with other women owned businesses. It also allows women business owners to create a business profile in WEConnect International’s eNetwork which is accessed by our corporate members, certified women’s business enterprise (WBEs) and other self-registered businesses globally. Women business owners in the U.S. can join the global network if they are already registered with the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
Certification will be available in this market in spring 2017. Check back for updates.
