SANTA ANA, Calif., June 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — SupplierGATEWAY and Hello Alice are pleased to announce a partnership to continue promoting the growth of small businesses by leveraging SupplierGATEWAY’s Enhanced Digital Certification™ (EDC) to facilitate the certification of small and diverse-owned businesses, which include women, people of color, U.S. veterans, entrepreneurs with disabilities, and the LGBTQ+ owners.
Hello Alice’s community of nearly 500,000 business owners will have an opportunity to acquire a valid certification of diverse ownership, which provides new business opportunities that may otherwise not be available to them.
“We look forward to bringing this offering to our New Majority owners,” said Carolyn Rodz, co-founder and CEO of Hello Alice. “Too often, these owners are excluded from access to opportunities and resources that can positively impact their business. This certification can open doors to many opportunities that these owners have traditionally been denied access to.”
The mission of SupplierGATEWAY and Hello Alice align as they look to support the success of small and diverse businesses.
“We have a singular goal of enabling millions of diverse businesses to get certified quickly and inexpensively,” said Ade Solaru, CEO of SupplierGATEWAY. “We believe EDC can help jump-start aspirational small businesses in the Hello Alice’s community to create the economic impact we all want.”
