Growth Acceleration Partners Awarded Woman-Owned Business Certification from WBENC
CEO and co-founder Joyce Durst acquires majority ownership of the company
AUSTIN, Texas [September 24, 2019]—Growth Acceleration Partners (GAP), a continuous software delivery partner, is proud to announce its certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the largest certifier of women-owned businesses in the U.S. and a leading advocate for women business owners and entrepreneurs.
“To be nationally recognized as a woman-owned business is a true honor and represents an important milestone for our company,” said Joyce Durst, CEO and co-founder of GAP. “I’ve worked closely with my team over the last several years to build a diverse company that offers clients better outcomes in product delivery. With this certification, more of the world can encounter the exceptional experience we offer at GAP.”
Durst co-founded GAP in 2007 and has now assumed majority ownership of the company. Bootstrapped since the company’s inception, she has been instrumental in leading GAP’s double-digit growth and rapid multinational expansion. Durst has spearheaded the company’s commitment to create more opportunities for women in technology, taking an intentional approach to sourcing, hiring and promoting women in leadership roles throughout every department.
“I have worked with GAP for several years and can attest to the team’s tenacity and commitment to success,” said Karen Gordon, CEO of 5Dynamics. “Under the guidance of Joyce and its exceptional leadership team, GAP has been a true partner in helping us achieve our business objectives. As a fellow woman-owned company, we are incredibly proud to be a GAP client.”
GAP joins more than 13,000 certified businesses as part of the WBENC network. The organization’s national standard of certification is a rigorous process, designed to confirm the business is at least 51 percent owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. Achieving its woman-owned business designation opens new opportunities for GAP, increasing the company’s visibility as a leading provider of data analytics, cloud, mobile and QA services.
