Escalate Solutions, a Denver-based advisory firm focused on leveraging the intersection of strategy, operations and technology, is proud to announce that it has achieved certification as a Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) and Economically Disadvantaged Woman Owned Small Business (EDWOSB) from the Small Business Administration.  

Prior to October, 2020, women-owned enterprises were allowed to self-certify that they were at least 51% owned and operated, but the process now requires an extensive review process by one of only four (4) entities approved by the SBA’s Federal Contracting Program.  In early October, Escalate Solutions was certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by the Women’s Business Enterprise Council – Westa regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). Once that approval was obtained, Escalate Solutions was able to apply for WOSB status with the federal government.  

The contracts that Escalate Solutions is now eligible stem from specific industries where WOSBs are underrepresented. Joining the WOSB Federal Contracting Program makes a business eligible to compete for federal contracts set aside for the program as well as any other contract awards they qualify for.

 Escalate Solutions is an approved WOSB and EDWOSB for the following NCAIS codes:


Administrative Management and General Management Consulting Services 


Human Resources Consulting Services 


Marketing Consulting Services 


Other Management Consulting Services 


Other Scientific and Technical Consulting Services


Research and Development in the Social Sciences and Humanities 


Public Relations Agencies


All Other Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services
