Chapel Hill, NC (PRWEB) September 23, 2013
3 Birds Marketing, LLC, a business specializing in digital marketing software and professional services for the automotive vertical, has been certified as a business owned and controlled by a woman by the National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC). Over 700 public and private sector individuals participated in establishing the Standards and Procedures of this rigid certification review. The goal of the certification program is to streamline the certification process and increase the ability of women business owners to compete for contracts at a national level.
3 Birds was founded in 2009 and is a digital software company headquartered near the campus of the University of North Carolina in the heart of Chapel Hill. “3 Birds employs women at all levels of its organization and is committed to providing career opportunities to women in the ever expanding fields of software and technology on an ongoing basis. We are proud to be offering these career paths and to have received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise through NWBOC,” said Kristen Judd, Founder and CEO.
"NWBOC seeks to increase the ability of women business owners to compete for corporate and government contracts," says Janet Harris-Lange, President of NWBOC. "At the same time, NWBOC also hopes to decrease the number of front operations participating in corporate and government outreach programs."
NWBOC, a national 501(c)3 not-for-profit corporation, was created in response to needs identified by the Procurement Special Interest Group of the National Association of Women Business Owners. The study revealed that the public and private sector had not received nor recognized the benefits of contracting with women suppliers. This has prevented purchasers from obtaining the best value in their procurement and it has limited women business owners from penetrating these markets, which has stymied their growth. NWBOC seeks to provide more corporations with the opportunity to better their procurement practices and to provide women suppliers the opportunity to compete.
