"Among the many partnerships formed in 2021, one community leader was able to make a significant connection that thrust her business to a new level. Founder and CEO of STC Consulting, Soledad Tanner joined forces with the Port of Houston as she became certified to do business with one of the world’s largest ports on the Gulf Coast. “The process of getting certified as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and Women Business Enterprise (WBE) was step by step, easy to follow. I was already certified by the City of Houston, which is one of the accepted certifications,” Tanner said".
The partnership was not only a strategic move, but it created a whole new world of opportunities for her thriving company whose firm helps improve the profit and productivity of businesses. “The Port of Houston is a massive and strategic engine of our local economy. The potential of working with them on future procurement opportunities is a life-changing event, not only for my business but for so many local businesses,” Tanner shared.
As the community continues to navigate through unchartered waters in the coming year, one thing is certain, the Houston East End Chamber of Commerce will continue to be a changemaker leading the way for more members to form partnerships highlighting the camaraderie and determination of neighbors coming together to help one another. We invite you to become a member and allow us to help you connect with other businesses and grow in 2022".
