We are pleased to announce that Ellos Global has received the prestigious 8(a) certification from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).
“After an extensive government evaluation process, we are thrilled to receive our 8(a) certification,” said Olga Argüello, Managing Director. “This certification provides us more visibility and opportunities in the government contracting space. This is a huge stepping stone for us and will increase Ellos Global’s footprint. It will also help our ability to compete and win contracts. This hopefully means more business and therefore more jobs that we’re able to bring to the community.”
The SBA 8(a) program was designed to provide business development assistance to companies owned and managed by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals. In order to be certified by the SBA, an applicant firm must: be a small business; be unconditionally owned and controlled by one or more socially and economically disadvantaged individuals who are of good character, be citizens of the United States; and must demonstrate potential for success. The certification gives Ellos Global the opportunity to bid on contracts that are specifically set aside for SBA 8(a) program participants.
