New online, searchable directory makes it easier for corporations to locate and partner with disadvantage business enterprise companies in Vermont.
DBESearch.com today launched its Vermont directory of Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) certified companies. The expanded directory includes over 40 companies across the state of Vermont. Industries included in the Vermont directory range from business and engineering services to material suppliers to trucking and transportation and much more.
In today’s environment, more and more corporations are realizing the value of partnering with DBE-certified businesses in their area and setting quarterly and annual goals as part of a larger supplier-diversity initiative. Supplier-diversity programs are a socially conscious effort by companies to practice an inclusive approach to procurement and in some industries it is even government mandated. In fact, according to an article by Harvard Business Review, companies like UPS and Coca-Cola are spending billions of dollars annually to do business with small, diverse suppliers and have goals to increase that spend year over year.
However, finding DBE-certified companies and other diverse suppliers is not always an easy feat within most U.S. states. DBESearch’s mission is to solve this challenge by making it fast and simple to search, identify, and reach out to local, diverse subcontracting candidates.
Vermont is one of 47 state DBE directories DBESearch has published since its launch in 2021. Other searchable state directories of DBE-certified companies include Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and New Jersey. View the full list in the State navigation tab at the top of this page.
DBESearch plans to complete DBE directories for all 50 states by end of 2022.
