A business must be at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by one or more U.S. citizens from any of the following ethnic groups: Asian, African American, Hispanic or Native American.
A business must be at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by one or more women who are U.S. citizens.

There are a number of professional organizations that certify minority, women, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or transgender-owned businesses. The certification process includes an in-depth examination of a company’s management practices, stock, financial documents, owner eligibility, personnel, operations, legal structure and site visit. The certification process can take up to four months or longer.
