About my venture

SOLID GROUND CONTRACTING INC.COM Started 2022

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY SERVICES: Solid Ground Contracting Inc. is a minority-woman-owned small business specializing in and offering all general contracting and construction needs. Small businesses are struggling post covid, therefore Solid Ground Contracting Inc. has a mission to create a diversified network for all small businesses (both men and women-owned) to have employment opportunities in the construction industry. SOLID GROUND CONTRACTING INC.MISSION: To establish a diversified network of resources to support small businesses in the construction industry. To create employment opportunities for women of all diverse backgrounds, and education through mentorship, and internships. As well as to promote education on the various employment opportunities and collaboration between men and women in the construction industry. RESEARCH & STATISTICS: According to the U.S. labor statistics, women represented only 10.9% of the construction workforce considering that they make up 47% of employed individuals. This means that the construction industry is only benefitting from approximately 1.25% of women in the workforce. Despite the federal government’s efforts to support women-owned, economically-disadvantaged, and minority women-owned businesses, the lack of funding and resources has not been adequate. Establishing a contracting and construction business network comprising both men and women of all diversified backgrounds will bridge the gap in the industry. Rather than competing, collaborating will produce employment opportunities, and level the opportunities for both men and women in the industry. SOLID GROUND BUSINESS MODEL: The construction industry requires multiple roles to operate seamlessly. The industry is comprised of management, finance, engineering, architecture, operations, legal, human resources, marketing, infrastructure, leadership, compliance, and executive positions aside from physical labor. We offer an end-to-end client experience that includes seamless communication, budgeting, staffing, on-site organization, & solid quality. The construction industry has the largest gender gap comprising 94% male and 6% female

Countries of operation: United States of America
