We’re very pleased to announce that Capital Pixel is now a Certified Business Enterprise (CBE) in the District of Columbia. As stated on the dcsmallbiz website,
The business certification program in the District of Columbia registers a company into a DC agency database and labels it as a Certified Business Enterprise (CBE). The District directs spending to these DC-based businesses that support and contribute to job creation and the city tax base, which in turn results in a much stronger local economy.
Businesses with CBE certification receive preferred procurement and contracting opportunities.
