“Corporate Connections provides WBENC certified WBEs with an opportunity to connect with Corporate representatives from our membership base. The setting allows firms to pitch their products and services as they prospect new business opportunities. This is a ‘must-attend’ event for any WBE who wants to grow her market share and identify new opportunities with a variety of corporations.” Felecia Roseburgh, WBEC-Great Lakes Indiana Director.

In addition to Corporate Connections, CEED is also providing a WBE Forum and New WBE Toolkit Training which is focused on how to leverage and market your WBE certification.
