SBA Women-Owned SB Program

Tue 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM
Topic: Government Contracting

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).
