Merit-Based, not Affirmative Action-based, Small Business Owner Certification1 is for
companies that rely upon the quality of their goods and services and not politics! These companies conduct business in the true manner of merchantilism
because the marketplace desires their goods and services whereas Affirmative Action companies cannot compete without political coercion.
Maine SBA™ enables business owners to give purchasing managers, contractors, lenders, customers,
and others business partners evidence their company is registered with Small Business Owner Certification1. This is very
important because many corporations and agencies seek to purchase the goods and services of companies registered with Small Business
Owner Certification in their quest for diversity.
