We had independent-minded entrepreneurs like Katie Lemire in mind when we created VeraCloud.
The founder of Lemire LLC, a certified New York State WBE, Katie is a former federal and state prosecutor and former Counsel to New York City Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly. Since 2013, Lemire LLC has assisted businesses, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and individuals in investigating sensitive matters, conducting due diligence, and assessing risk.
Getting certified as a WBE was an important part of the Lemire LLC business plan from the very beginning. But Katie knew that just getting certified was no guarantee: Getting public sector work as a WBE firm would require her to proactively get the word out about her business, and find effective ways to connect with potential partners.
We built the VeraCloud toolkit to help Katie do just that. At VeraCloud, we’re committed to enabling entrepreneurs to turn their certifications into powerful drivers of business growth. Our business management and outreach tools give entrepreneurs like Katie an easier, more efficient, more effective way to make Diversity work.
