Washington ranks #1 in economy activity in the United States. 630,000 small businesses operate in Washington state (99.5% of the total number of businesses). 197,000 are minority-owned businesses. These businesses employ over 1.4 million employees (over 50% of the employees). Small businesses account for over 36,900 net new jobs. The voices of the MBE construction services community deserve to be heard loud and clear. Effective public policy initiatives remove barriers to success, and they support an equitable environment. So NWMBA is taking a ‘seat at the table’ in Olympia and we invite you to join us in delivering positive changes related to the state’s business climate, quality of life issues and equal rights.
Like people, there are no two businesses that are exactly alike. With that in mind NWMBA’s approach to providing technical assistance and training that truly ‘moves the dial’ for your business comes from our collective experience of getting to the core issues that may be holding back your success. Our leadership, partners, trainers, and technical providers have over three centuries of experience in overcoming challenges, winning competitively bid procurement opportunities and knowing how to manage sustainable growth as you win new contracts and create new jobs.
Learning can come in many forms. NWMBA’s approach is to mix collaborative and panel discussions, case studies and lessons learned, shared experiences, coaching and mentoring, and workshops so we learn how to be and do better. Our leadership, partners, trainers, and technical providers capture these teaching moments in video so you can view and review at your convenience and pace.
This allows us to specialize in all dimensions of trades and stocks, because we have a specialist within the team for every scenario.
We work with our clients and do a deep analysis of their business. We help prepare possible outcomes to different decisions.
