WBEC SOUTH STATE RESOURCES

As part of our ongoing efforts to connect WBEs with lucrative opportunities, WBEC South works with dozens of Strategic Partner Organizations to enhance and expand our resources and opportunities for WBEs.

ALABAMA

Alabama is not only a great place to build, nurture and innovate. It’s a wonderful place to live. To experience all the flavor, graciousness, beauty and promise a land can deliver. As many global brands, homegrown startups and Fortune 500 companies have discovered, it’s a place where the aim is not just to grow, prosper and succeed.  But even better than that… to win.

MISSISSIPPI

Mississippi supports business ventures that create new opportunities for its people. You can see it in the incentives and tax advantages offered. You can see it in the attitudes of leaders; you can see it in the success ratios of new and expanding businesses.

TENNESSEE

Great brands deserve the great state of Tennessee. We believe in high expectations, low debt and a pro-business regulatory environment. Tennessee is proud to be a right-to-work state with no personal income tax on wages. Our state and local tax burdens are among the lowest in the country, and our state budget operates with a healthy surplus rather than deficit.
