Reno-based digital marketing and design agency Ace Studios recently obtained LGBTBE certification through the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) Supplier Diversity Initiative.

According to a July 29 press release, NGLCC is the business voice of the LGBT community and serves as the nation’s exclusive certifying body for LGBT-owned and operated businesses.

“We are so pleased to welcome Ace Studios to the ever-expanding network of NGLCC certified LGBT Business Enterprises and the hundreds of corporations and government agencies eager to put them to work,” NGLCC Co-Founder and President Justin Nelson and Co- Founder and CEO Chance Mitchell said in a joint statement. “According to NGLCC’s groundbreaking America’s LGBT Economy report, America’s estimated 1.4 million LGBT business owners, many of them NGLCC certified, add over $1.7 trillion to the GDP and create tens of thousands of new jobs.

"We are proud to count Ace Studios among those who prove every day that LGBT businesses are the future of the American economy.”

With the certification, Ace Studios is now eligible to participate in the NGLCC’s supplier diversity programs with the Fortune 500 and government agencies nationwide, among other benefits.

“We are so incredibly honored and thrilled to receive this distinction and look forward to seeing our company grow more with it,” Ace Studios CEO Kurt Thigpen said in a statement.
