Introduction to SBA Small Business Contracting Programs – Webinar

Tuesday, June 11, 2019, 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Are SBA Small Business certifications something you can use to leverage your business status in competing for federal government contracts? Join us and see.

This webinar will provide an overview of the SBA’s Small Business development programs including the Small Disadvantaged Business (SDB), 8(a) small business, Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB), Economic Disadvantaged Woman Owned Small Business (EDWOSB), Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB), Service Disabled VOSB (SDVOSB) and HUBZone Small Business programs.

These programs are administered by the SBA to help small businesses compete for and win federal contracts. Every year, the government purchases approximately $400 billion in goods and services. And, many of these procurements are “set-aside” exclusively for small business entities.

 This Webinar Will Cover:

  • Overview of HUBZone, WOSB, VOSB & other Small Business Programs
  • Recent changes to WOSB , VOSB/SDVOSB, and HUBZone Programs
  • Small business certifications
  • Why you may or may not want to participate in these programs
  • Eligibility & how to apply
  • Marketing your status
  • Where you can find help

No cost. Registration required. Registration will close 90 minutes before start time. Once registered, you’ll receive an email - usually within one working day - with instructions on how to join the webinar.
