Westchester County Executive Announces Launch of
GIS Map for MWBEs
Westchester County Executive George Latimer and the Office of Economic Development are giving Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprises (MWBEs) a new tool on the web to connect and gain access to opportunities within the County. A new web-based mapping application, developed by the Westchester County Department of Information Technology GIS, provides a comprehensive view of all businesses registered with the Westchester County Minority and Women-Owned Business Program. The application allows users to identify detailed information about each business and functions like filtering business data by categories or finding nearby businesses based on an address and valuable infographics.
There are currently 2,510 MWBEs registered with Westchester County. Of that number, 1,415 are businesses owned by women. The top five specializations include: professional services, construction related services, communications, products and supplies and organizational management.
