Find out how the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and their resource partners help small businesses start, grow, expand and recover after disaster strikes! In order to help provide a level playing field for women business owners, the government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses that participate in the women’s contracting program. These contracts are for industries where Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSB) are underrepresented. Some contracts are restricted further to Economically Disadvantaged Women-Owned Small Businesses (EDWOSB). Do you know about the U.S. Small Business Administration? Are you a woman-owned small business looking to grow? Do you market your product and/or service to the federal government? Benefits of attending this workshop: learn how the SBA and our entrepreneurial ecosystem can help you and your business advance; learn how women-owned companies compete for, and win, federal government contracts; become knowledgeable about the WOSB certification process; learn how the WOSB, 8(a), HUBZone and Service Disabled Veteran-Owned (SDVO) Programs help agencies achieve contracting goals (5% of its prime contracting dollars must be awarded to WOSBs).
