Woman-Owned Local Business Earns Certification

AUGUST 1, 2019

Owner Julie Scher announced that her business, Midwest Film Factory (MWFF), Inc., has achieved national certification as a Women’s Business Enterprise by the Great Lakes Women's Business Council (WBC), a regional certifying partner of the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). Scher's business specializes in video and photo production.

“I am delighted that the Midwest Film Factory has qualified for this certification. I welcome the opportunity to advance diversity as promoted by the Great Lakes WBC. All the staff at Midwest Film Factory are looking forward to collaborating with and learning from other women entrepreneurs,” said Scher.

WBENC’s national standard of certification, implemented by the Great Lakes WBC, entails a meticulous process including an in-depth review of the business and a site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm a business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by a woman or women. By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of supplier diversity initiatives.

MWFF specializes in business videos and film documentaries for websites, apps, training, social media, YouTube and more. Scher has long worked in journalism and media in Noble County. Her Auburn studio location at 650 North St. contains 3 studios for video, photo, audio and podcast production, livestreaming, and one of the area’s few green screen cyc wall studios. Studios are available to rent for do-it-yourself production as well. 

MWFF has been in media production, marketing and creative storytelling for a wide range of corporate customers for over 25 years, and video production for more than 10 years. To learn more, visit www.midwestfilmfactory.com.
