Cloud 10 Studios Achieves Prestigious Woman Owned Small Business Certification

February 28, 2024


DALLAS, TX and LAS VEGAS, NV, February 28, 2024: Cloud 10 Studios, a trailblazing creative group proudly announces that it has been awarded the highly coveted Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) Certification by the Small Business Administration (SBA). This certification is a significant milestone for Cloud 10 Studios, validating their commitment to excellence and leadership in a competitive market.


Beyond the film industry, Cloud 10 Studios is using their expertise in animation and visual effects to support companies and projects in the healthcare, biotechnology, construction, and technology industries.  For example, Cloud 10 Studios partnered with the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and the National Park Service (NPS) to use a hybrid approach of 360º survey data, fluid simulations, and Unreal Engine to create “Rise Up: Ocracoke,” a 1:1 immersive experience visualizing the devastating impact of rising sea levels on the North Caroline coastline.

 

“We are thrilled to finally have our WOSB certification in place. It will provide great opportunity for us when bidding on federal contracts that are set aside for certified women-owned businesses,” shares Tracey Dispensa, founder and executive director for Cloud 10 Studios.

 

The journey to obtain the WOSB Certification was a rigorous and demanding process that took an entire year for Dispensa.  To start, Dispensa registered Cloud 10 Studios with SAM.gov, an official website of the U.S. government.  From there, she obtained the Women’s Business Enterprise National Certification (WBENC) with the Women’s Business Enterprise Council – West (WBEC-West) who was instrumental in assisting Cloud 10 Studios apply for their WOSB Certification.

 

“The process was long and there was a moment where I thought we were going to be declined and would have to restart the entire process, but WBEC really helped guide us.  For other woman owned businesses thinking about certification, I highly recommend seeking support from WBEC or an organization like it,” says Dispensa.
