Participants must be a certified or certifiable diverse business enterprise. A diverse business enterprise is a company that is at least 51% owned and controlled by an individual whose business is defined as: Minority Business Enterprises, Woman Business Enterprise, or Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business. Eligible participants must provide a product or service that a utility can reasonably be expected to utilize. Ideally the participant will be the majority business owner or significant decision maker of the business.
The only cost is the time commitment of the participants. We require 80-90 percent attendance for all participants.
