Benefits of Working With A Woman-Owned Business
In observance of National Women’s Month, L’IMAGE Design Studio is proud to be a certified Woman-Owned Business Enterprise (WBE). To be a WBE, more than half of the business must be owned and controlled by one or more women who fit a variety of requirements, such as US citizenship, daily operations responsibility, prove fiscal responsibility, and more.
If you are a Residential Builder, Developer, Architect, Hospitality Firm, or other business that could use interior design, there are numerous and significant benefits to partnering with a women-owned business enterprise.
Federal Tax Incentives
The federal government provides tax incentives for those who business with women-owned businesses (and also minority owned businesses). In addition, tax liabilities are reduced for those projects that are funded with state or federal money (grants or loans) when the woman owned business is your supplier.
Win More Government Contracts
By meeting or exceeding Minority Owned Business participation requirements, as a prime contractor, you will be among the first selected. Many state and federal agencies have diversity spending requirements, and partnering with a WBE will make you stand out from your competition.
Woman-Owned Business Strengthen Your Reputation
Partnering with a WBE helps create a more diverse market, and demonstrates your value by allowing you to reach not only your standard core audience, but a more socially conscious and diversity-aware audience. Your reputation strengthens, and your value as business increases.
L’IMAGE Design Studio has a rich history of working with prime contractors and providing symbiotic benefits not only to each other, but to the end client. Everyone benefits.
