—LMK Clinical Research Consulting (LMK), a functional service provider specializing in Trial Master File (TMF) management, announces it received certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) from the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).
Founded in 1997, the WBENC is the largest, third-party certifier of women owned businesses in the United States. To be considered for certification, a business must be 51% owned, controlled, operated, and managed by a woman or women. WBENC (a national 501(c)(3) non-profit) partners with 14 Regional Partner Organizations to provide its world-class standard of certification to women owned businesses giving them the ability to compete for business opportunities with members and government agencies throughout the country.
WBENC’s certification represents America’s most prestigious brand, and its acceptance by more 1,000 corporations, in addition to many states, cities, and other entities, demonstrates their commitment to diversity. WBENC is also an approved Third‑Party Certifier for the United States Small Business Administration (SBA), Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB), and the Federal Contracting Program.
To achieve WBENC WBE Certification, LMK completed the formal documentation and site visit process, which was administered by one of WBENC’s 14 Regional Partner Organizations. "We are excited to be certified as an official Woman-Owned Business by WBENC. LMK is ready to expand into new markets, and the WBENC certification will give us opportunities to learn and grow," said Sholeh Ehdaivand, President and CEO of LMK Clinical Research Consulting.
