Activate Human Capital Group Becomes Certified HUBZone Small Business

HUBZone is “a United States Small Business Administration (SBA) program for small companies that operate and employ people in Historically Underutilized Business Zones.” The HUBZone program was created in response to the HUBZone Empowerment Act created by the US Congress in 1998. 

Activate Human Capital Group, a Woman-Owned Small Business, Women’s Business Enterprise, and Small Business Enterprise, (WOSB, WBE, SBE), is pleased to announce its certification as a HUBZone small business.  We are located in Colusa County, a region of the state of California with historically very low literacy rates and high unemployment.

As a certified HUBZone small business, Activate is eligible for program benefits, which include eligibility for HUBZone set-aside awards, HUBZone sole source awards, the HUBZone Price Evaluation Preference in full and open competition, and HUBZone reserves.

Owner and CEO of Activate, Melissa Ortiz, says, “We are looking forward to connecting with supplier diversity contacts and leveraging this certification to grow our business and bring new opportunities and jobs to our local HUBZone.”
