A few of the benefits of working with a certified minority owned business are:

1. Promotion of Innovation: Nexlevel Consulting Services brings innovation to our clients.

There is also a second tax incentive that reduces tax liabilities for companies that use minority and women-owned businesses that supply labor or services to a project funded with federal or state grants or loans. State tax incentives may be available as well. It also showcases a client's interest in and commitment to the economic growth of all communities.

3. Increased Revenue: Research conducted by the Hackett Group shows that working with a NMSDC-certified business, can increase profitability with as much as 130% return on investment, providing distinct competitive advantages.
