Press release date: February 1, 2014

Eagle Design Group was certified as a Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) by the National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC) in February 2014.

The National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC) has led the way for women business owners to obtain WBE Certification. Created in 1995, NWBOC was established to increase competition for corporate and government contracts through implementation of a national certification program for women business owners. The development of our national Woman Business Enterprise (WBE) certification program, sponsored by IBM, involved cooperation and input from over 700 public and private sector individuals. The result was the creation of the WBE Application, the process, and the NWBOC Standards and Procedures. NWBOC was created in response to needs identified by the Procurement Special Interest Group of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO.) The investigation revealed that to a large degree corporate America and government agencies had not received, nor recognized, the benefits of contracting with women suppliers. Only a small fraction of corporate and government contracts were with women-owned firms. This mindset prevented purchasers from obtaining the best value in their procurements, and it limited women business owners from penetrating these markets, which has stymied their business growth. Research has shown that after developing supplier partnerships with women-owned firms, many companies and government agencies have enhanced their bottom line for their shareholders, and taxpayers, respectively.

Eagle Design Group began operations as Interconnect Systems Group, which was just a handful of people with a goal to be able to connect all current and future computers and components together through standardization.  With this goal in mind, the company designed and produced unshielded twisted pair (UTP) wiring products incorporating the use of register jack (RJ) type outlet designs that became the Computer and Data Communications industry standards.  These standards were essential for the proliferation of computer networks.  With the full adoption of these standards in 1995, the connectivity of networks was assured, at that present time and in the future.
