Exploring ways your small business can start or increase government contracts

March 4, 2022 @ 7:30 am - 2:00 pm EST

Join us for an informative workshop and learn more about government contracts and small business:

  • Ways to introduce your business to the rapidly changing market;
  • Compelling reasons to engage with the Government; and
  • Strategies to successfully capture federal contracts.

Federal agencies are changing what they buy, and the procurement process is changing–increasing opportunities for government contracts for small companies. We will introduce attendees to procurement methods that are opening doors, reducing barriers, speeding up delivery and raising small business profitability.
