Our Black-owned business certification is a pathway to new opportunities. Providing our reviewer team the data points we need to certify your company establishes you as a trusted vendor and potential partner.
Our partners at the United States Black Chambers Inc. (USBC) receive daily requests from local & federal government agencies, corporate partners, and everyday consumers who want to spend money with Black businesses they can trust. We source directly from the certified enterprises in this database to support those conversations and facilitate meaningful relationships that create revenue.

About WLBB Certificate
Upon certification, you will receive an approval email. We will generate a unique digital certificate specific to your business. You’re welcome to download or print a copy for your records. You are welcome to use it in discussions of potential contracting opportunities.
Certified Black-owned businesses receive free access to major USBC events and national conferences. We also work with companies and government partners to create specialized skills building, seminars, and training that will help you navigate the ever-changing economic landscape.
Grants & Potential Funding Programs
The USBC helped give away almost $5 million in grants to businesses in 2020. We expect local chambers, corporate sponsors, and the USBC to give away even more in-kind funds, economic support, and business opportunities in the year to come. Becoming certified enables us to help ensure your business has access to these opportunities when and where they’re happening.
Educational OpportunitiesWhen business owners join our community, they receive access to local chambers of commerce in their neighborhood as well as a champion in Washington DC through the USBC. To demonstrate the potential of this opportunity, the USBC even hosted a discussion with Vice President Kamala Harris and Secretary of Treasury Janet Yellen, where Black business owners got to share their priorities for an economic recovery. We want to ensure every business owner has access to rooms like that through tools like this.
Corporate Sponsored Matchmaking Events
We work with the world’s largest companies to help diversify their supply chains and make more inclusive choices when it comes to potential vendors for products or services. That could be anything from catering an event, subcontracting part of a project, or providing products in their stores.
We think more Black businesses deserve a seat at the decision-making tables of corporate America. We didn’t think it was enough to just bring more chairs, so we decided to build a platform. If that sentiment resonates. Join our movement and certify your business here today
