We value the energy and drive often shown by Small, Minority, and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (S/M/WBEs). Having grown from a small business ourselves, we know that S/M/WBEs work extra hard to provide value and quality work. To help these businesses grow and prosper, we:

  • Provide “How to Scale Your Business” seminars – Outreach events held to provide an opportunity for S/M/WBEs to learn from industry professionals about bonding, insurance, marketing, safety, operational excellence, and to meet Verdex staff and gain insight into best practices working with us
  • Provide early payment options – We understand that cash flow can be a key challenge for subcontractors; our team offers opportunities to get paid in advance, so your project expenses get paid on-time
  • Create smaller bid packages -- We know that many smaller businesses can’t bond and have limited staff and capacity to execute work -- however, their track record and commitment to produce quality work deserves an opportunity, so we carve out smaller packages from the larger scope that they can successfully achieve
  • Encourage larger subcontractors to hire S/M/WBEs if they are subbing out portions of their work -- We encourage larger subcontractors to consider using S/M/WBE firms by sharing names of our successful S/M/WBE subcontractors that are capable and have capacity to execute the work.
