GroundFloor Media Receives Women’s Business Enterprise Certification

DENVER, March 23, 2011 – GroundFloor Media Communications (GFM), a Denver-based public relations agency, recently received national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) by the WBE-West, a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). The certification provides GroundFloor Media with the opportunity to network and share best practices with other women-owned businesses, as well as serve as a resource to corporate and government entities that share an interest in supplier diversity.

Laura Love founded GFM in 2001 and now runs the company with her business partner, Ramonna Robinson, who joined the firm in 2005. Both are considered leading businesswomen in the Denver community and were named finalists by the Denver Business Journal for their Outstanding Women in Business award. Together they have made GFM one of the fastest growing and award winning PR firms in the New West.

WBENC’s national standard of certification is a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm that a business is at least 51 percent owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women.

According to WBE, including women-owned businesses among their vendors, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to foster diversity and the continued development of their supplier/vendor diversity programs.
