Galacxia, Inc. Achieves Prestigious Woman Owned Small Business Certification


Aliso Viejo, CA — May 30, 2024 — Galacxia, Inc., a pioneering force in the tech industry, 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 Galacxia, validating its commitment to excellence and leadership in a competitive market.

The journey to obtain the WOSB Certification was a rigorous and demanding process that began nearly two years ago. Galacxia’s first application was denied, highlighting the challenging nature of the certification process. Undeterred, the company resubmitted its application on July 22, 2023. This time, Galacxia enlisted the expertise of Karla Gonzalez from the Orange County Inland Empire Small Business Development Center (OCIE SBDC), a free resource dedicated to supporting small businesses.

 Founder’s Thoughts

“I am thrilled beyond words to receive the WOSB Certification. It opens many opportunities, will help with fundraising and grant applications, and demonstrates our dedication and resilience,” said Sandy Eulitt, CEO and Founder of Galacxia, Inc. “I absolutely could not have achieved this momentous milestone without the support of Karla Gonzalez and the OCIE SBDC team in navigating through this complex process.”



WOSB Program Requirements and Benefits

The WOSB program, detailed on the SBA’s website, provides significant benefits, including access to federal contracts set aside for certified women-owned businesses. Eligibility requirements and program benefits can be found here:

SBA Administered Application and Review Process

Obtaining the WOSB Certification was far from straightforward. Nine months after submitting the application, Galacxia received a Request for Information (RFI) from the SBA, allowing only five days to respond. The process of responding required uploading documents through the SBA’s portal. Extensions could be requested via a Help ticket, but responses took 5 to 6 days, and extensions granted were limited to an additional five days. This tight timeline was a recurring challenge, as Galacxia received a total of four RFIs, each requiring Sandy to drop everything and review the request, knowing that, if she needed help, it would take the SBA Help Center several days to respond.

“The RFIs were particularly challenging because they sometimes requested documents we had already submitted and did not always activate the necessary application buttons for us to upload our responses,” explained Ms. Eulitt. “It was a test of my diligence, attention to detail and patience. Missing a response window would have meant the application would have been closed, and the process would have had to be restarted after a mandatory 90-day wait period. Once the application reached the Pending phase a couple weeks ago, the WOSB letter stated that the average time to move from pending status to approved was 90 days, so I was looking at potentially waiting another 15 months or more to get this critical certification.” Sandy continues, “I am developing a healthtech app that has the potential to save many lives and a lot of healthcare dollars. I want to sell it to the Veteran’s Administration (VA), Medicare and Medicaid once the platform is proven. The WOSB certification opens doors and will help me do that.”
