Good news – the decision could be yours.

Eight months ago, we launched our website, The idea for the site was born during a meeting when one of my business partners expressed how challenging it was to identify Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE)-certified companies across different states.

Many corporations today have a dedicated budget for partnering with local, diverse companies. However, due to how many states make this information available (e.g., static pdfs and spreadsheets), it can be difficult to identify and partner with DBE-certified companies from state to state. Our mission is to disrupt this experience…in a good way.

DBE Search has modernized the process for finding DBE-certified companies across the United States by creating an online, searchable database that can be filtered by:

  • State
  • Zip code
  • NAICS code
  • Service category
  • Company name
  • DBE type

Since April 2021 we have launched our database in eight states with a ninth coming soon:

  1. California
  2. Connecticut
  3. Maine
  4. Massachusetts
  5. New Hampshire
  6. Rhode Island
  7. Texas
  8. Vermont
  9. Georgia – coming soon!

Our goal is to make the fastest and easiest way for companies to find and partner with DBE-certified businesses in every state.  However, we have learned that the time it takes to get a new state database built and live varies depending on the information each state collects, stores, and makes available to the public. Because of this, we would like your input to prioritize which states to focus on.

The power is yours! Let us know which state(s) you would like to see added to by completing this one-question survey:

We appreciate your input.

Your feedback on how to improve the experience on the website is very important to us. Have ideas on how we can make DBESearch better? Email us at
